We started in 1925 by our founder Ioannis G. Fragopanagiotis as a small workshop for steel and handrails and now after an incremental course of development we grew into one of the most trust-worthy Greek companies in the field of steel constructions and in the trade of steel products. Our starting point was located at Roitika, a region outside the city of Patras, and in 1982 we moved to the Industrial Area. In 1998 we were renamed to N. Fragopanagiotis S.A. as a clear sign of our progress and finally in 2014 VATHRON was born as a construction management company with main focus the expansion of our aboard activities. Nowadays our company is located at a plot of land with a total area greater of 27.000 m2 and more than 11.000 m2 indoors. Employs 62 persons, 35 technicians, 8 administrative and 9 for erection, as well as permanent external co-workers in the field of design. We are certified by internationally recognised third-party assessment bodies for the quality of our products, for the Quality Management System and for the Health and Safety Enviromental System this assures that Vathron is effectively committed and capable of satisfying technical, regulatory and customer requirements.
The individual processes of design, supply, construction, delivery and installation are the core of the research of the special team of engineers of our company with many years of experience in the management of such projects.
The parameter of time is a key variable in which we have invested a huge amount of planning and study to be able to keep the pre-agreed with exceptional accuracy for the
The importance of contact with each of our customers and communication with them supports a principle of operation of our company and concerns the anthropocentric logic in each project separately. And for us, the relationship we build with you is vital.
Our problem solving approach, regardless of the complexity of the project we undertake, allows us to optimize time and cost in the design of various studies in order to give shape and stability to unique works. The full supervision of these terms last till the delivery.
Our 95 years of experience in the most complex steel-based constructions allow us to propose cost-effective solutions both in terms of production and construction without any compromise on safety and quality standards.
The industrialization of each project during all of it’s phases is closely monitored by our established quality systems:

The growth of this kind of construction that hostes our lives and working procedures has very high importance in our project evaluation and a significant amount of our investment.
The era of steel dominance in the multi-storey buildings construction sector has long ago started highlighting the benefits that our steel-framed technology can provide.
With new regulations for Nearly Zero-Energy Building (NZEB) becoming an important requirement across the world from 2020, we rise our standars even further to achieve the best possible result.
The infrastructure industry is constantly innovating from a technology perspective. In some cases these technologies are new materials; in other cases they are process- and technique-based innovations. In our case are both and we keep researching for new techniques.
Climate-appropriate, structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing are the key factors in constructing a building envelope with our company investing a large amount of resources and research.
We operate worldwide in the design, supply and erection of complex steel structures ranging from bridges, stadiums and theaters, to architecturally complex buildings and structures for the Off-shore and Oil & Gas sectors. Due to the complexity and the nature of our work we emphasize to the high education, specialization and safety of our personnel.
