In 1985 the company was reformed, and remains to this day, as a limited company under the name of D.N. Haritopoulos SA. By 1987 we were only quarrying the "Snow White" Marble of Thassos. In 1988 we established our own factory for the exclusive cutting and processing of the marble from our quarry.
The quarry and factory benefits from the latest and best technologies available. We invest in our plant constantly to ensure that we are utilising the latest leading edge technologies with robust equipment to guarantee the delivery of quality products to our customers.

Our Quarry & Factory production

Quarry

From our quarry we produce marble blocks, offcuts and aggregates. We use modern technology and techniques to extract the marble, including the latest water cooled wire saws.

Factory

Our factory works exclusively with the marble from our own quarries. The marble blocks and offcuts are transported to the factory by our own trucks where they are cut into slabs of 2 and 3 centimeters thick. These unworked slabs are then either sold or processed, into tiles typically sized 30x60, 40x40, 40x60, 40x80. Custom sized tiles can be cut to order. With the use of the latest cutting technology (wire saws) we can also produce blocks or slabs to custom dimensions.

Production Quarry & Factory

The output of the factory includes, squared marble slabs of various thicknesses and squared marble tiles. Both polished and unpolished. We can accommodate orders for custom sizes of both tiles and marble blocks.

History of marble excavation on Thassos Island

The quarrying of marble on Thassos Island is an ancient art and its history has been recorded from at least the 7th century BC where the records show that the Parians established a sculpting school. There is clear evidence of some of these ancient quarries in the popular tourist area of Aliki, you can even imagine the techniques used to extract the blocks. From this time there are also writings about Thassos White marble being used all over Greece and Asia Minor, usually in the construction and decoration of temples and other important civic structures.
It is said that the Romans also utilised Thassos marble and transported it all over their empire.
During the Byzantine era it was used extensively throughout the empire, including the construction of parts of the famous Agia Sofia Basilica located in modern day Istanbul (Constantinople).
Thassos Snow White marble’s popularity is undiminished to this day and is now used all over the world for selected and exclusive buildings and their decoration.
