In 1959, Ezz Foreign Trade Co. was established with the objective of being a key importer of rebars in Egypt. During the 1970s, the company successfully expanded its operations until it became the leading steel importer and distributor in Egypt. By the early 1990s, Mr. Ahmed Ezz – Ezz Steel Founder – continued the expansion and growth by investing in the steel industry by establishing Ezz Steel Co. in 1994.
