All the company's workforce, from the management to the personnel capitalises on:• the in-depth knowledge of the materials & continuous research into new materials• the securing and proper use of state-of-the-art technology• the optimization of all of the processes certified to ISO 9001:2008and with emphasis on safety in the workplace, it remains committed to the common goal of the company for sustained growth, mindful of the fact that this is in the interest of all its collaborators.
With quarries not only all over Greece but also in neighbouring countries, and production in excess of 70,000 m³, PAVLIDIS MARBLE GRANITE's marble products are applied in, and enhance, large and small constructions in all five continents.The company's industrial installations occupy an area of 20,000 m2, in grounds of 100,000 m2, located at a short distance from the city of Drama, the centre of marble mining in Greece. The branches in Afidnes, Attica and in Kavalari, Thessaloniki, ensure that the company's products reach urban centres throughout Greece.
The ARISTON, VENUS and GALAXY white marble are the company's flagship products.The VOLAKAS, SIVEC and THASSOS marble complete a palette of white marble that can satisfy not only all domestic, but also international, requirements.With its KAVALA semi-white crystalline marble the company offers an exceptionally environmentally-friendly and economical material for many applications, while the ON THE ROCKS cream-beige limestone has earned its place in the competitive market of beige materials.
From the time of its foundation until today, the company has been intensely orientated towards exports with export sales exceeding 90% of its turnover. Starting out from the demanding construction requirements of the countries of Western Europe, the company has progressively expanded its activities in the two hemispheres with exports to the Far East, South-east Asia, the Arab countries, as well as Latin America and the USA.With a multitude of projects worldwide, PAVLIDIS MARBLE-GRANITE constitutes one of the most professional choices as regards the undertaking and execution of large-scale projects to high quality standards and with absolute respect for the prescribed time limits.
The industrial installations of PAVLIDIS MARBLE-GRANITE include three photovoltaic parks of total capacity 5 MW, having an energy equivalent to 12,000,000 m2 of forest (1,200 hectares), and providing energy autonomy to the company with the added advantage of not burdening the environment with 6,250 tons of CO2.
Using state-of-the-art extraction methods aimed at optimising production in the quarries significantly reduces the production of waste products and rubble that are deposited in predetermined sites. The company ensures with particular sensitivity the conservative use of the water required for the cooling of the cutting machines and takes measures to reduce noise pollution with a view to minimizing the environmental burden.In parallel PAVLIDIS MARBLE-GRANITE arranged for the planting of 25,000 seedlings and shrubs as well as the systematic watering thereof, in order to rehabilitate the abandoned mining sites in quarries.Following the implementation of energy efficiency programmes, energy savings of 28% per ton of rock extracted were achieved.

Using mild extraction methods, 30,000 m³ of marble blocks are excavated and are sent out immediately, or after processing, to every corner of the globe. The names ARISTON, VENUS and GALAXY are the trade names of the colour selections of the white marble that is extracted in the quarry. This is a noble and fine marble with high aesthetic value.
The quarry from which the homonymous KAVALA marble is extracted dominates the top of a hill. The capacity of the quarry amounts to 40,000 m³ of marble blocks per year. One of the traditional crystalline marbles of the Greek land with applications ranging from private to public works, and works that require an excellent finish, KAVALA is preferred for its superior aesthetics and durability.

Southern Albania, near to the village of Skrapar, is the location of the company's quarry that excavates the cream/beige limestone under the name of ON THE ROCKS.
