Egyptian Steel Recognized in the World Finance 100 for 2017

14 January, 2018
Egyptian Steel currently stands as one of the most powerful companies in Egypt.
 
Its prosperity is largely down to the work of founder and CEO, Ahmed Abou Hashima, whose optimistic and bold approach has seen the company go from strength to strength – even in tough conditions.
 
In spite of Egypt’s 2011 revolution, which pushed the country through much turmoil, Egyptian Steel was able to take off, having been founded just the year before.
 
Abou Hashima believes that investors shouldn’t be put off in times of political uncertainty and economic upheaval. If they are brave, the rewards can be great.
 
And if his organisation’s performance is anything to go by, it seems these are wise words; Egyptian Steel’s four steel plants now produce 2.3 million tonnes of steel annually.
 
For its outstanding work, Egyptian Steel has been recognised by World Finance in the magazine’s World Finance 100 guide, which identifies some of the world’s most successful organisations.
 
Companies are selected not only on the basis of their financial performance, but their commitment to sustainable and supportive practices also. Egyptian Steel has been praised in particular for helping to support the Egyptian economy.
 
 
In the future, Abou Hashima hopes to invest his finances and energy into new areas, like hotels and tourism, which he believes will play an increasingly important role in the Egyptian economy.
