wiki: the only Enamel Factory in Greece operated in Kea’s port (Korissia) from 1927 until 1957 and played a major role in the local economy and social life. More than 300 male and female workers used to work in this factory. Initially it produced mainly domestic utensils and signs. In 1936 it started to produce helmets and canteens for the Greek army and between 1939 and 1941 it produced mortars. Unfortunatelly the factory bancrupted in 1957 due to the changes in the post-war economic situation.

In 1991 it’s building was characterized by the Greek state as a Monument that has to be preserved due to its contribution to the industrial history of Greece. Nowdays a team of the factory’s ex-workes has founded an association named “Friends of the Enamel Factory Association” which protected some of the factory’s instruments and tries to turn it into an Industrial Museum.

The imposing industrial building of the factory lies in the valley of Korissia (Livadi) and  its smoke stack dominates the area
