Having worked for 10 years in various construction companies, Nikolaos Kofinas gained the experience he needed to implement his innovative ideas at the time.
Seeing the needs of the market for more economical houses, which would be delivered to the customer faster and would be superior in quality compared to the usual constructions, he studies building systems and materials.
Emphasizing wood, which he considers the best
ecologically but also constructionally solution, creates exposure
of prefabricated houses at the company's current offices in
Mesogeion Avenue of Agia Paraskevi, establishing at the same time
After the dynamic beginning of the company, the requirements for further organization and development bring Michalis Kofinas to the company and thus the foundations of the path of the Kofinas brothers in the events of the construction sector are laid.
Then begins the search for permanent partners, engineers and craftsmen to ensure a stable and upward trajectory. It is no coincidence that since 1980 many of the company's executives have been working at Kofinas O.O. until today. and they continue to share the same vision with us.
At the same time, the company is building the first factory in Markopoulos which increases the production of prefabricated houses, but also mass-produces smaller houses which are transported ready-made with cranes.
The company Kofinas O.E. responding to the increase in demands and with an emphasis on improving the services provided to the customer, it expands its exhibition in Agia Paraskevi, while also creating a new one on Markopoulou Avenue. It is worth noting that in the new exhibitions, the customer was also given the opportunity to choose individual materials that would include his home.
The construction of houses that were transported by cranes comes second, since now the company Kofinas O.E. it provides a basis for the prefabricated houses which it builds on site on the plot.
Having already built thousands of homes, the company is not resting. Continuous research and search in the field of prefabricated housing, mainly through various exhibitions and engineers from abroad, constantly improve the quality of construction. The company now even chooses from abroad the best raw materials for the construction of the houses.
In 1993, in order to prove its leadership in the field of pre-construction, it organized for the first time in Greek events an Exhibition of prefabricated houses held in the forecourt of the Zappeion mansion.
From 2000, the new generation of the Kofinas family will assume key positions in the company (Kostas Kofinas: foreman, Pigi Kofinas: accounting, Eugenia Kofinas – architecture).
The thirst of the family and its partners for the evolution of the existing construction combined with specialized static studies and Germans
engineers create the unique screw masonry system in Europe.
The company's new factory in Markopoulos Mesogaia is being built for the production of the innovative masonry.
The modern factory with huge storage spaces is equipped with machines that robotically place the screw in all the construction parts of the masonry.
The prefabricated houses that were built on site on the plot are a thing of the past. Now the masonry is transported ready to the plot with proprietary cranes,
since the company's factory is further upgraded with machines that angle, press and test each wall separately.
However, the company is not only developing in the technical field but also in the commercial field. In 2004, it rebuilds its showrooms in Agia Paraskevi and Markopoulou Avenue and at the same time creates a sales network in Greece and abroad. Now Kofinas O.E. exports its masonry and its foremen are sent at regular intervals abroad for supervision and also for researching construction technologies.
The unique building system of the company Kofinas O.E. it is tested for its durability at the National Technical University of Athens, surpassing any natural limit of durability. The construction surprised experts and scientists who spoke publicly about the company's quality and technology.
The company's vast experience in wooden constructions and continuous technological research, mainly abroad, lead the Kofinas company to deal with wooden Finnish houses as well. Now the company imports the best quality timber in Europe to build houses with Finnish logs as well. To prove their quality to the customer, the company expands its exposure on Markopoulou Avenue by building Finnish houses.
The company is undeniably the center of reference in the developments of prefabricated buildings. This is also the reason why engineers, students and technical schools visit the company's exhibitions and constructions to study and learn constructions.
The Kofinas brothers, despite their objective recognition in the construction market, are not complacent, continuing uphill. They attend the largest European exhibitions, such as BAU in Germany, emphasizing the construction of larger-scale buildings (commercial buildings, office buildings, etc.) and proceed by researching modern construction solutions.
This technological progress is also verified by the new experimental research of three-story KOFINA construction. The experiment carried out in the technical office of the internationally renowned Emeritus Professor of the National Technical University P. Karydis, confirmed once again the uniqueness of the construction and the name of our company.
The further modernization of the company is achieved by the construction of a new office building for the company in Agia Paraskevi. At the same time, the company will present the new Flexyhome housing series. The Flexyhome series was created by the company in order to offer home buyers an economical solution, which, however, does not lag behind anything in terms of technology and quality.
By creating exclusive dealerships, importing huge quantities of raw materials and pre-fabricating most of the manufacturing en masse in our company factory, we have been able to reduce manufacturing costs without compromising on quality. From the wooden Swedish frame to the last link, Flexyhome construction has proven that the best is not always the most expensive.
The Kofinas company is being upgraded to a S.A. At the same time, it is creating a network of representatives in Greece and Europe, while for the first time the export of prefabricated construction parts also begins abroad.
At the same time, it is technologically and qualitatively developing its construction system with ecology and sustainable development in mind. Both the masonry of the structures and the roof are reinforced with ecological materials, ensuring optimal energy behavior. This optimal energy behavior will form the basis so that for the first time the company Kofinas S.A. to construct certified passive buildings.
The company KOFINAS SA innovates without resting. As always, he constantly imports new elements in the construction of houses, which are recognized and "are certified", both from our hundreds of satisfied customers and from the National Technical University of Athens, where the unique building system of the Kofinas company was tested for its durability surpassing any natural limit of endurance.
So once again, without resting, innovation appears, with The new factory of KOFINA SA which will house its vision which is already in operation since the beginning of 2020. KOFINAS SA once again creates something new that makes a difference in the field of prefabricated houses. This factory is located in VI.PA Markopoulou.
