Our top brands


MERCOLA is a historical company dating back to 1960. Working in co-operation with various family and multinational industries from Europe, developed a wide technological background and a strong client base in the industry, offering specialized products in the wood and paper industries, in automotive assembly plants and a multitude of tailor made products required for specific applications in industry. The quality of the company’s organization and manufacturing capability attracted top quality collaborations from leading multinational groups, including license agreements for local production. 

In the mid - 90’s the company made a swift change of focus, away from  industrial applications due to the rapid de - industrialization of the country, turning its focus on construction related  and consumer products. This new direction was instrumental in forming the new corporate entity, with a highly developed branding profile.

To achieve this, a big effort was made towards gaining a wide market presence in the huge number of local DIY - Hardware stores and in high profile DIY retail chains like Leroy Merlin. This market led orientation resulted to a rapid and steady brand extension, increasing the number of products significantly in new categories, following the market trends.
