Delphi Distomon

Delphi-Distomon S.A., a subsidiary of MYTILINEOS, is one of the largest bauxite producers in Greece and in Europe, and currently employs approximately 80 people.

With its history starting in the 1970s, the Company is the result of the merger of “Delphi Bauxites S.A.” with “Greek Distomon Bauxites S.A.”, and is today one of the two companies that are actively involved in bauxite mining in Greece.

The Company is headquartered in Athens, while its Technical Division, responsible for supervising production and research, is located in the area of Ano Kounouklias, Eleonas, in the Prefecture of Fokida.

The Technical Division is also responsible for the Company’s Departments involved in Health & Safety and in the rehabilitation of the lands affected by the mining activities. It is noteworthy that the Company’s voluntary rehabilitation activities date back to 1972. Until 2020, the Company handed back to the Forestry Department the first fully rehabilitated and now self-sustainable lands (some 89 hectares). In terms of its performance in the Health & Safety domain, the Company’s accident incidence/severity rates rank among the lowest in the mining sector.

Delphi-Distomon is applying an Environmental Management Program (certified in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard) and an Occupational Health & Safety Management System (certified in accordance with the ISO 45001:2018 standard).
