In 1979 along with his brothers, Thimios and Vangelis created the company “MARBLE of KOZANI PAPATHYMIOPOULOS” (MKP), emphasizing on the Marble of Tranovalto, Kozani, and creating a vertically integrated unit on the 12th km of Servia – Tranovalto.
Simultaneously, MKP begins to operate in mining the famous marble of Kozani in two quarries in Tranovalto Kozani.
In 1989, MKP opens a new quarry in the region of Roditis, Kozani, where they mine the homonymous marble RODITI of Kozani, a marble proven to have excellent quality and incredible color homogeneity.
After nine years of increasing development in 1997, MKP expanded its business activity with a new processing plant in Beirut. Based in Beirut, the company promotes the Greek
Kozani Marble in many countries of the Middle East.
That same year (1997), MKP opens in Athens a Marble Exhibition Centre to better serve customers in Southern Greece.
