In 1936, before the Second World War, a group of pioneering Greek entrepreneurs founded VIS. Their vision was to create the first industrial packaging company, utilizing a "smart" and globally timeless material, the corrugated cardboard.

From the beginning, VIS, the leading company in the packaging field, created expertise in the Greek industry, opened new markets and replaced inadequate packing. Its contribution to the creation of Greek products, their development, and their acknowledgment is unique and recognized by the entire Greek industry.
