Thrakika Ekkokkistiria S.A. is one of the largest and oldest cotton ginning mills in Greece.
The facility is located in Northeast Greece, right outside the town of Komotini, close to the border between Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria. The company was founded in 1972 in Komotini and for many years was the only ginning mill in Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. As with all ginning mills in Greece, the company buys seed cotton from cotton farmers, processes it through ginning, and then sells the ginned cotton.
It is not a coincidence that the company’s name has been connected to the history of cotton in Thrace. The company’s close collaboration with farmers and its expertise in processing, storing, and distributing the product have been crucial factors for the fast development of cotton farming in the area. Giving particular attention to the quality of its products and good service for its clients, the company very quickly established itself in the textile manufacturing industry and maintains a reputation as a credible and reliable supplier in Greece as well as internationally.
During the last decade, and amid the financial crisis in Greece, the company grew further and now operates three ginning mills: two in Rodopi and one in Provatonas in Evros.
