Profile of the Group
Katradis has a long and distinguished history which goes back to the first half of the twentieth century. The company was established in 1936 by Konstantinos katradis, operating back then as a ship supplier specializing in high quality mooring ropes.
Currently in the hands of a third generation member of the Katradis family, the company has since then become a pioneer in the field of manufacture of mooring ropes and anodes for sacrificial protection, serving the marine industry as well as the sectors of offshore, aquaculture, fishing and yachting.
Over the years we have developed extensive expertise in the design and development of synthetic mooring ropes, which are our mainline products. Our rope factory in Greece, whose site covers an area of 30000m2, is one of the most technologically advanced factories in Europe, manufacturing top quality ropes such as Double braided, Sirius UHMWPE (ULTRA High Molecular Polythylene), Kevlar (aramid), LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) and others.
Responding to a more recent customer demand our company has gone on to manufacture zinc and aluminum anodes such as Hull anodes, Tank anodes, Pit guard anodes, all of which are made in our highly specialized factory.
We also supply a wide range of steel wireropes for shipping, fishing and industrial purposes. Our steel wireropes comply with the requirements set by ABS, API (American Petroleum Institute), GL and Lloyd’s Register.
Furthermore, the Katradis group boasts a large stock of deck equipment such as anchors, stud link anchor chain cables, container fittings, alloy steel chain slings, lifting slings and lashing webbings as well as port development equipment such as fenders, buoys, floating marinas, bollards and oil booms.
