ElFateh for Industries and Steel Constructions provides high-quality steel structures for a wide variety of infrastructure and industrial projects. Set up in 1985, the company is headquartered in the Egyptian capital Cairo and has built up a customer base which spans numerous sectors, including construction, cement, oil and gas, power and transport.

The products it offers range from bridges to space frame systems, overhead cranes and tanks and pipes, supported by design, fabrication and erection services carried out according to international standards. Major projects it has worked on over the years include Sharm El Sheikh airport, a General Motors factory and numerous other factories, warehouses and industrial sites.

The company has coped well with the economic turmoil in its home market in recent years and continues to win business abroad, in part because of the falling value of the Egyptian pound, but also thanks to its diversified portfolio, an export-focused sales strategy and its success in creating partnerships.

“Egypt has been subject to a huge currency devaluation which puts us in a position to offer very competitive price and quality levels,” says Managing Director Ahmed Fathelbab. “Our company was successful in growing in the midst of a fluctuating market and in the past few years we have executed large-scale projects in airport and stadium construction, power, and oil and gas with some renowned European companies.”

The company continues to look for opportunities abroad, principally in nearby markets in Africa and Europe, and it continues to expand its network of overseas offices to that end. “We have established offices in Sudan and Libya, and within the next year we will have offices in East and West Africa,” says Ahmed. “We aim at being a door opener for European engineering contracting companies where we can be their steel supplier in their projects.”
