General Cable Egypt S.A.E is one of the leading cable producers in Egypt. It manufactures wires and cables for the transmission and distribution of energy. The company was founded in 1996 and is based in Cairo, Egypt with a solid share of the Egyptian market. It is specialized in low voltage cables and provides control and auxiliary cables for construction and industrial markets; its products include power, instrumentation, overhead transmission line, and PVC insulated central cable.
EIP’s objective is to promote good governance and expertise on the GC Egypt Board, and to expand the company market share in Egypt in the local market as well as its export business to the Middle East and Africa, given Egypt’s large trade agreements in the region and EIP’s wide network.
This builds on EIP’s value-added history of strengthening management teams, and benefiting from its regional connections. The project involves increasing the production of low-voltage cables, and the possibility of introducing medium-voltage cables. General cable Egypt will also benefit from the strong and active Lebanese presence in Africa, for export purposes.
