In January 1976 following civil unrest and military occupation, Christakis, lost his factory in Mia Milia. Not one to give up, he persisted in his vision and decided to start all over again by registering a new company “Christakis Agathangelou Ltd.”, specializing in the manufacture of industrial stainless-steel tanks and food processing machinery.

This was the first stainless steel equipment manufacturing company on the island. As a true entrepreneur, Christakis was determined to design and develop innovative solutions, which were completely unique for that time.
