The company EKKAF-CH.TSILIS & CO was founded in 1987 by Mr. Charalambos Tsilis and in 2004 it became a public limited company under the name EKKAF S.A.
The main occupation of the company is to source supplies for prestressing, to construct prestressed and post-tensioned beams, deck slabs, bridges and buildings and prestressed anchors, supply bearings and joints of all types and lifting bridges for bearings replacement.
From 1986 until 2002 we have been representing Greece in the French system of prestressing FREYSSINET and from 2002 until 2017 in the Spanish Post-Tensioning system MEKANO 4. We are currently representing the CCL International Post-Tension System as sole distributors in Greece.
Since 2004 we have been representing the Italian firm AGOM to supply all types of bearings, seismic isolation products and expansion joints.
We have worked with all major construction companies in Greece and all these years we have performed over 500 projects on the pretension (bridges, silos, Metro works, drainage pipes, permanent and temporary ground anchors), but also the supply of bearings and joints for a big variety of construction projects.
