The factories

Apart from the shipyards, Ermoupoli had mechanical tanneries, smithies, saw mills, and soap industries which operated circa 1860. There were also mills, glass industries, “loukoumi” industries etc. When the port declined, in the 1880s, these industries were shrinked. In late 19th century the textile industry flourished and up to 1910 at least 24 factories were created. Today many of the old factories have been demolished, and others have changed their use.
