How 250 year old Greek bell makers defied the global financial crisis

Nice video of of the Galanopoulos brothers who are one of the two surviving bell-makers in Greece. Their family has been in the business of making bells since 250 years. Most other bell makers in Greece failed barring them and another one in Athens.

Am wondering whether the financial crisis led more demand for church services as people looked to God in case of despair. This led to rise in demand for their bells? But then other bell makers should have survived too..
