A major business organisation operating in Greece and internationally, MYTILINEOS operates in the EPC and construction sectors through METKA, in the Metallurgy and Mining sector through Aluminium of Greece, and in the Energy sector through Protergia, with a turnover (2017) of over $ 2 billion and more than 2,900 direct and indirect employees. Read more..

The Company’s strong international presence in more than 30 countries establishes it as a global leader, as its exports to markets abroad account for more than 2% of total Greek exports, significantly benefiting the national economy and conveying a strong message to international investors for its commitment to continuous growth.

The history of MYTLINEOS goes back to the early 20th century. MYTILINEOS Group was founded in Greece in 1990, having evolved from an old family-run metallurgy business operating already since 1908. In 1995, MYTILINEOS was listed in the Athens Exchange and its share is today a constituent of the FTSE/ATHEX Large Cap Index tracking the top 25 companies ranked by market capitalisation.

In 2017, through an absorption-type merger, the parent company integrated its subsidiaries (Aluminum of Greece, METKA, PROTERGIA), transforming into a new single corporate entity, MYTILINEOS SA, thus enhancing its operational flexibility and further strengthening its market position and financing capabilities. With this new corporate structure, MYTILINEOS has successfully completed a crucial strategic step for the transition into a new era, as it has effectively shielded itself against the constantly changing conditions, affirming at the same time its prospects for further growth, in spite of the increasing competition in global markets.

Committed to the business strategy and to its vision for continuous evolution and development covering more than three decades, MYTILINEOS today stands out for its unique modern employment model, its active social profile, the innovative mechanisms it adopts for business growth, its strategic investments in state of the art solutions for the upgrade of its operations, and the successful consolidation of its presence in global markets.

At the same time, as a responsible corporate citizen, it constantly pursues continuous business excellence and the adoption of best practices, balancing business growth with social responsibility and the protection of the environment. For MYTILINEOS, Sustainable Development is synonymous to seeking business excellence with dedication to its vision and with respect for society, the environment, its people and its shareholders. The Company’s sustainability policy is founded on the harmonious coexistence of its business activities with the needs of the local communities where its operations are based. In this framework, MYTILINEOS is actively supporting major initiatives based on the global sustainability goals established by the United Nations.

As a result, the company today ranks among the top global contractors for energy projects and is internationally recognised for its reliability, flexibility and ability to successfully carry out highly demanding projects in the energy sector. At the same time, the company is adapting its model for further growth, addressing its clients’ and society’s new needs, becoming actively involved in the shaping, financing and final form of the projects it undertakes, offering the high level of specialisation and the multifaceted expertise that have established it as one of the most competitive contractors globally.

MYTILINEOS is also a leader in the Metallurgy sector, with the trading name Aluminium of Greece – the largest vertically integrated alumina and aluminium producer in the European Union and one of Greece’s healthiest growing industrial companies. The company’s international business activity, in cooperation with DELPHI-DISTOMON, is a driving force for the national economy as well as for the development of the country’s regional areas. Aluminium of Greece has completed 50 years in operation and 10 years of successful growth in Greece, with over €600 million of investments in the technological upgrade of its plant’s facilities and the improvement of output and productivity. This was one of the largest private investments carried out in Greece recently.

MYTILINEOS is also firmly established in the Electric Power market. The Power & Gas Trading Business Unit, where the Company operates through Protergia, brings under the same roof the management of all MYTILINEOS energy assets and activities. The Company today is among the private-sector leaders in the electric power market and the largest independent electricity producer in Greece, with a portfolio of energy assets totalling more than 1,200 MWh of installed capacity, which accounts for over 13.5% of the licensed thermal plant production capacity operation in the country. As a private producer of electricity with investments in high-tech power plants, Protergia has an in-depth knowledge of the electricity market and is constantly engaged in carrying out environment-friendly investments, thus contributing to the Greek economy and employment. Protergia is also active in the supply of electric power, providing electricity to businesses, professionals and households and aiming to meet the customers’ requirements for competitive prices and modern, reliable services. As of 2018, Protergia has exceeded 100,000 supplies. 

The company’s operations in the Energy sector are strengthened by the Natural Gas activity, which secures its supply with natural gas on competitive terms, thus enabling it to enhance the Company's energy profile and, at the same time, achieve remarkable organic growth. M&M Gas, a private joint business venture of MYTILINEOS and MOTOR OIL, active in the supply and trading of natural gas, is the company that effectively launched the liberalised Greek natural gas market, delivering the very first private liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo in Greece.
