Our company was established in 1925 by Pepo Is. Joseph in Salonica, as a general agency company, operating on a commission basis.

In 1932, the head office was moved to Athens and the Company became a registered partnership, with Robert H. Rafael joining. Two main branches were then developed: textiles and pharmaceuticals.

In textiles, the Company acted exclusively on behalf of multinationals, such as I.C.I. Fibres, Courtaulds and British Nylon Spinners.

In the drug front, the Company set a pharmaceutical facility jointly with the French companies Clin-Byla and Mayoly-Spindler. These operations were halted during World War II and pharmaceutical activities brought to an end after the war.

In 1956, Ino P. Joseph joined the Company, to create the packaging and food processing sections and in 1964 the Company was restyled into "ELPACO" I. JOSEPH & CO., dealing ever since with:

  • Food processing plant for wafer, biscuit, bread, sugar and flour confectionery and chocolate
  • Packaging machinery for food and non-foodstuff
  • Flexible packaging materials

representing world-renowned companies in the aforementioned fields, always on a commission basis.

Elpaco are among the leading Greek agency companies in the food and packaging trades, with a traditional clientele and first class introductions in the specialised sections of the industries being served.

As a third generation family business, the Company was managed jointly by Ino P. Joseph and Charles I. Joseph, until July 2001, when Ino Joseph retired and handed the full management over to the latter, who is a partner since 1985, and the Company was then restyled to "ELPACO" C. I. JOSEPH & Co.
