The rapid rise of a world-class steel producer
In 1959, Ezz Foreign Trade Co. was established with the objective of being a key importer of rebars in Egypt. During the 1970’s, the company successfully expanded its operations until it became the leading steel importer and distributor in Egypt. By early 1990’s, Mr. Ahmed Ezz – Ezz Steel Founder – continued the expansion and growth by investing in the steel industry through establishing Ezz Steel Co. in 1994.
Since its establishment, Ezz Steel has grown rapidly to become the leading independent, fully integrated steel producer in the Middle East and North Africa, and a major player in the global steel marketplace. At Ezz Steel, we have always aspired to be a technological leader, with ongoing investments in advanced steel plants and the latest technology enabling us to consistently increase capacity and steel quality throughout our history.
Here’s a brief outline of some of the key milestones on our journey so far:
