PYRGOS company, which produces army boots and footwear, was the first industry of army boot production in Greece to be founded. It was created in 1967 in Thessaloniki by Dimitrios P. Skoumpris, manufacturer of handmade military army boots and men’s footwear.
Taking into consideration the same principles, in 1979 the company is transported to new privately-owned facilities at a 20.000 square meter space and a 2.000 square meter roofed space, 8 klm from the town of Xanthi, and starts the production of army boots with the method of vulcanized outsole tread, fulfilling this way a large percentage of the Armed Forces’ needs.
The knowledge, the experience, and the expertise of our company cover the whole range of army boots and shoe manufacturing both in the Public and in the Private Sector as well.
Within the framework of our policy of continuous quality development and respecting the human potential of our company, we have owned a quality certification assurance ISO 9001 since 1998.
In 2008 we moved on to the manufacture of two new types of army boots made with a different method, taking into consideration the best possible conditions for the users – officers serving the army and the air force.
During the last years, we have been supplying the armed forces with army boots and shoes, covering the 85% of the needs of mainly the Army and the Air Force, as well as the 75% of the army boots that can be found in shops nationwide.
During the last decade, Periklis and Panagiotis Skoumpris have undertaken the reins of «PYRGOS» company, and in continuous collaboration with Dimitrios Skoumpris, founder of the company, have managed to keep it in the first place of the industry of army boots in Greece.
