The Daily News Egypt - - Business -

Al Maalim In­ter­na­tional Com­pany for Gen­eral Sup­ply­ing and Con­trol Sys­tems (AIC) has revealed that it is in ne­go­ti­a­tions with an in­ter­na­tional com­pany, with the aim of es­tab­lish­ing a fac­tory of the com­pany in Egypt on an area of 3,000 sqm, with ini­tial in­vest­ments worth EGP 50m.

Ma­hamoud Kamel, chair­per­son and managing di­rec­tor of AIC, said that the Egyp­tian mar­ket is con­sid­ered promis­ing; hence, the com­pany made a de­ci­sion to head to­wards man­u­fac­tur­ing through es­tab­lish­ing a cen­tre for col­lec­tion on one of the floors of the com­pany’s head­quar­ters’ in New Cairo.It is planned to be opened be­fore the end of this year on an area of 550 sqm as a first step un­til the prepa­ra­tion of the head­quar­ters of the fac­tory is com­pletely ready to be opened dur­ing the sec­ond half of 2018.

“The fac­tory will man­u­fac­ture sev­eral prod­ucts af­fil­i­ated to an in­ter­na­tional brand with a large mar­ket share,” Kamel said. He stressed that this step will help re­duce im­por­ta­tion from abroad and re­duce the exit of foreign cur­ren­cies out­side Egypt and pro­vid­ing prod­ucts as soon as pos­si­ble, as well as ex­port to the Arab re­gion, the Mid­dle East, and Africa, es­pe­cially that AIC’s fac­tory is con­sid­ered the first of its kind in the Mid­dle East.

“The fac­tory will in­clude more than 70 spe­cial­ists who will re­ceive train­ing out­side Egypt on a high pro­fes­sional level.The fac­tory is expected to in­crease local pro­duc­tion of some in­ter­na­tional prod­ucts, as well as cre­ate new job op­por­tu­ni­ties for young peo­ple, re­duce costs, and trans­fer ex­per­tise to the local mar­ket,” Kamel ex­plained.

He went on to ex­plain that the added value of the man­u­fac­tur­ing process will ap­pear on the medium term through the ten­dency to man­u­fac­ture some parts lo­cally, even­tu­ally deep­en­ing the local in­dus­try and in­creas­ing its com­pet­i­tive­ness in the local and foreign mar­kets.
