Arones Paper was founded in 1927 in Athens by Henry Arones, with main focus the trading of printing paper and related products.
In 1956, while already a major player in the Greek market the company became a société anonyme.
In 1971 management passed to the second generation, Jacques and Regina Arones who over the next 30 years led the company to the top of the Greek market and developed it into the leading paper agent in Greece.
Since 2001 the third generation, Beatrice Arones and Errikos Arones, along with an experienced management team and associates have taken over the transformation of the Company’s business model to fit a fast-changing market.
From 2010 Beatrice Arones’ husband, Christos Laras, is jointly responsible for running the company, along with the trading branch of the group.
