For more than 30 years, quarrying an processing of local marble has been an occupation for the people in the Prefecture of Ioannina. The rock formations existing in the region stand out for their uniformity of color and good quality.

They can be placed both in internal and external areas but serve also a wide range of decorative uses.

The "Yianniotiko" (i.e. marble of Ioannina) has an exceptional image, great resistance, accessible price and wide range of possible applications. The above reasons contribute decisively to its widespread, growing use.

Dermand, both in Greece and abroad, is important in spite of the sharp competition of substitutes, as it is a natural product which maintains in full the features of the raw material from which it is extracted (natural rock).
