In 2008, Ms. Kontari Stavroula (Roula) decided to start her own distribution company – CHEMICAL NET – after two decades of experience in key sales roles in multinational companies. Back then the company employed just one person and rented a small office.
After six years, in 2014, the company was re-named as S. KONTARI & SON, moved to new offices, and added four more people in the team. Around that time, a subsidiary in Thessaloniki was established as the demand in the area of Northern Greece was increasing.
Late 2020 the company completed the building of their own new own office complex which includes:
- A fully equipped laboratory for testing, recipe creation, new product formulation and all kinds of experiments.
- Independent space for sample preparation and mixing.
- Ample office space to add more people.
With this investment the company seeks to expand their market share for their existing products, to broad their portfolio and offer a unique service tailored for each customer.
