The manufacturing system of Markidis mainly consists of three primary production lines which take up sixty five per cent of the companys production capacity. Having decades of experiences in confectionary manufacturing, the company has been immerced in the production of fruit-based confectionaries, chocolate-asociated and bakery-purpose products.
Fruit-based products in turn, are further divided into two additional production lines, the fruit process and the manufacturing of confectionery raw materials such syrups, jams, toppings and fillings. From its highly automated moulding to high-tech chocoate enrobing mashines, the company guarantees unobstructed flow progress of the most delicate chocolate products.
Additionaly, its dedicated and highly upscale fruit coating, filling and cutting equipement ensures that the specific task process is carefully carried out with painstaking perfection, thus providing standardization, uniformity and eventually confectionary fruits, jams and fillings of intrincic value. Together with its main production lines, the firm runs a number of ancilarry ones such sugar almond and chocolate sugar almond manufactoring, as well as seasonal confections and receipies of traditional Greek sweets which hold an equall worth in terms of quality of product and appeal to customer, within it.
Aiming to control the whole production process, we have also invested heavily in the establishement of a brand new and high-scale style production and packing line. Whithin the line, a large number of packaging formats are utilised from small packages such sachets, bagging, flow wrapping,bulletin, vases to bulk-purpose buckets which can cater adequately the overall gammut of our products given the specific type and volume of each one.
Located in the area of Aspropyrgos with a built-up area of 4000 sq metres, our company's plant is a modern and full-equiped purpose built facility with state-of-the art machinery that ensures a fully automated processes. The decision on siting was made by taking into account two important factors, the availability of transport and inputs.
The building instalations of the company are located in a area which permits an easy access to a good transportation network
(national roads, port of Piraeus-Patras, El Venizelos Airport) and close proximity to the firms main suppliers. However, the best use of materials, personnel and equipement in performing a task and also for establishing the work content of that task is mainly subjected to the design and the layout of the transformation facilities.
Operating in automated production enviroment, our machinery and equipement have been laid out in a way to serve the needs of the product and of the process.
