The Historical Origin of Our Name
The first part of the distinctive titles and trade names of all the companies of the Group, comes from the ancient "Diolkos", a land route for the transport of ships between the Saronic and the Corinthian Gulfs along the Isthmus of Corinth, at a time when the strait did not yet exist. The wealthy and renowned city of Corinth had two ports: one in the north (Lechaion, in the Corinthian Gulf) and one in the south (Kechrees in the Saronic Gulf).
The ships that unloaded at Lechaion and would continue sailing east, instead of circumnavigating the Peloponnese, would be transported by land on the isthmus (in Diolkos), launched again in the Saronic Gulf and would then sail to their destination. The reverse was done for ships that came from the East and continued via the Corinthian Gulf.
Our constructions company began its operations in August 2001.
