In 1979 Panagiotis Kovanis founded the company under the name "P. KOVANIS & Bros". For several years the company undertook a series of construction projects for the private sector such as earthworks, demolitions, etc. Gradually, the budget and scope of projects have been upclassd and the company proceeded with the purchase of equipment.
The company's growth was steady and in 1995 it was necessary, due to both financial and operational reasons, to found a new company under the title "KADMOS S.A.". By that time, the projects were executed for the public and private sector, as well as in collaboration with other leading companies, such as "AKTOR SA", "TERNA SA", "J&P AVAX", "INTRAKAT" etc. The same period, the operational areas of the company were extended to the construction of industrial buildings, steel structures and housing apartments, the installation of electromechanical plants and more.
During the latest years, the company has entered dynamically the energy sector keeping an important role in the construction of renewable energy parks, a new field with a significant turnover. Having cooperated with leaders in the field, such as "GAMESA", "INTRAKAT", "GES" etc., the company has already constructed wind farms of over 45 MW in total and solar parks of over 12 MW.
To streamline its operations companies were formed under the title “EVAMAN S.A” in order to cover the field of the construction of buildings and parking areas and “VIKO S.A” in order to cover the needs of energy works and electromechanical design and construction. In 2009, "KADMOS BULGARIA" with headquarters at Sofia was also founded in order to cover for the growth of energy investments in Bulgaria.
The privately owned mechanical equipment has always been a benchmark for the companies of the field and its value is estimated to be around 6 million €.
