Militzer & Münch founded the country unit in Greece on October 1, 1970. The company has been active there for almost 70 years, as Militzer & Münch's first office abroad was established in Athens in the 1950s.
Were it not for the COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding restrictions on contact, the company would have several reasons to celebrate this year: in spring, Militzer & Münch turned 140 years old, and October marked the 50th anniversary of the founding of the country unit in Greece.
Greece was the place where Militzer & Münch moved into its first office abroad: By the 1950s – almost 70 years ago – the company already had its own agency in Athens. Until 1970, further offices followed in the important port cities of Thessaloniki and Volos. Even then, the Greek team offered numerous import and export services by land, air and sea as well as customs and warehousing services. These included, for example, consolidated rail transports from Germany to Athens.
One of the more recent milestones of the country unit: in late 2018, Militzer & Münch Greece moved into a new distribution center, merging various warehouses at the Aspropyrgos site near Athens. In addition to the almost 14,000 square meters facility in Aspropyrgos, the company continues to operate at its second location, in Thessaloniki (4,400 square meters).
