KATRADIS GROUP: A LONG AND DISTINGUISHED HISTORY

Katradis Group has a long and distinguished history that goes back to the first half of the twentieth century. The company was established in 1936 by Konstantinos Katradis, operating back then as a ship supplier specializing in high-quality mooring ropes.

Currently, in the hands of the third-generation member of the Katradis family, the company has since then become a pioneer in the field of manufacture of mooring ropes and sacrificial anodes for ultimate corrosion protection, serving the marine industry as well as the sectors of offshore, aquaculture, fishing, and yachting.
