On the 1st of May 1929, in Piraeus, Kyriakos Zografos founded his first company. He imported on a sole agent’s based and sold through his shop most of the known brands in Europe of musical instruments, gramophones, radios and pianos and hunting shotguns also.
In due course he extended his retail sales by establishing two more branches, one in Athens and the other in Salonica.
After the II W.W. continuing his fruitful endeavours transfers the company’s seat in Athens and covers the market’s demand in home electric appliances, radios, motocycles, hunting shotguns from USA and Europe. A wide network of agents is organized all through Greece backing them up by guaranteing the imported products, repairing and offerning competent service.
In 1972 his only daughter Aikaterini Papadakis unites her company to her father’s one under the name N. Papadakis & Co Ltd. The company’s interest turned towards the hunting and target shooting items representing well known Houses, such as Verney Carron, Manufrance and Gaucher of France, LuMar of Italy, Norica of Spain.
