Delemar Aluminum to invest EGP 750 mn in new factory, eyes IPO in 2023

Delemar Aluminum is investing EGP 750 mn in a new factory in Sadat City, with an eye to begin construction work before the end of the year, CEO Mahmoud Haroun told Hapi Journal. The factory will take three years to complete.

This follows the opening of its new factory: The company announced it has built an architectural glass factory — Delemar for Processed Glass (DPG) — in the Sixth of October industrial zone with an annual production capacity of 600k sqm, according to a press release (pdf). The company plans to invest up to EGP 600 mn in the factory and double or triple its capacity by next year.

Big investment plans: The company plans to double its investments over the next five years, Haroun said in the release. It also plans to ramp up exports to 40% this year, up from 15-20% in 2021.

And an IPO in the cards? Delemar is considering listing on the EGX next year, and plans to discuss the possibility in a general assembly meeting sometime this year. The company is studying the possibility internally with its own chartered accountants, and has not yet tapped any investment banks to advise on the offering, Haroun said, without disclosing the exact timeline, size or value of the planned IPO.

About Delemar: The company is among the largest producers of extruded aluminum products in Egypt and the Middle East region, producing around 20k tons of aluminum annually.


Industrial gas producer Gulf Cryo will start operating its new factory in Tenth of Ramdan city early next year, Al Borsa quoted Logistics Director Fathy Saad as saying. The new plant will have a production capacity of around 160 tons of liquid oxygen per day, and some 40 tons of nitrogen per day, he said.
