The company under the name Viokyt was founded in 1973 for the purpose of making corrugated cardboard cartons. In 1980 it was transferred to different premises in Acharnes, Attica, and in 2000 started operating from in its new state-of-the-art facilities in Schimatari, Viotia. Significant investments in equipment and know-how contributed to the creation of an advanced production unit, following several milestones: New five-color boxing unit with the possibility of water coating or UV lamination; New seven-color boxing unit with the possibility of water coatings or UV lamination; New six-color sheet digital printer.

Later in 2016 Dunapack Packaging, a subsidiary of Austrian Prinzhorn Holding with 6600 employees, and with a leading position and presence in 16 Central and Eastern European countries, acquired 100% of the shares of Viokyt.

In the second half of 2017, a new investment plan was set to be completed by the end of the first half of 2018. It included the expansion of the building facilities, the installation of a new carton making machine and new production units capable of water coatings or UV lamination.

“Viokyt, with its existing equipment, continuous investment and human resources, is now considered a leading corporation in the corrugated packaging industry in Europe, and is now able to meet the packaging needs of the majority of its customers,” comments the company.
