In 2002 it acquires FEST and enters dynamically in the production of non-stick cookware. FEST, in the years that followed, gained a leading share in the Greek market and significant exports to more than 25 countries.
In 2011 YALCO, continuing the acquisitions, acquires IONIA, the leading brand of domestic and professional porcelain in Greece. At the same time, it develops a network of stores and shop-in-shops, both for IONIA porcelain and for the selected collection of household products IONIA HOUSE.
