The Group suffered a major setback in 1974 due to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus resulting to the occupation of Famagusta town.This had catastrophic effects on the Group as all its assets and facilities were lost. The Group having as the only ammunition its long experience and reputation as well as the support of its clients restarted its operation in Limassol Port where it established the FAMA Group Shipyard, the only shipyard in Cyprus, with a floating dock that was built by the yard to LLoyd's Register. The Shipyard covers all scope of ship repairing activity with extensive fabrication and construction support facilities.
