In the midst of the rapid development of global industry worldwide, the need for an entity capable of keeping pace with this development to modernize and develop industry and push it to be able to compete was imperative. Co-financed by the European Union, the Egyptian government and the Egyptian private sector, IMC was established aiming to support industrial enterprises and create a favorable business environment for the industrial sector, under the umbrella of the Ministry of Trade and Industry.
Over years, IMC has worked to push the Egyptian industry sector towards global competition, as it has provided support to thousands of industrial facilities, through various packages of technical support services, programs and projects that have led to increased production, increased exports, reduced manufacturing costs, and improved competitiveness. It helped open many new export markets, provided thousands of job opportunities in various industrial sectors, and contributed through its branches throughout Egypt to providing direct services, studying the needs of factories, implementing modern management systems and energy programs, and granting hundreds of quality certificates and certificates of conformity of products to international specifications, which qualified those facilities to penetrate new export markets. In addition, IMC has worked over the years as a strong supporter of the Egyptian industry by enhancing the value of local industrial component, which contributes to reducing the gap between exports and imports and thus increasing the contribution of the industrial sector to the GDP.
IMC continues to provide its various service packages to all industrial facilities in all industrial sectors and in various industrial zones in Egypt. It is still working to achieve its mission to support the Egyptian industry and achieve the objectives of the industrial development strategy by making Egypt a leading industrial country in the Middle East and North Africa region and a major export center for medium-tech manufactured products by 2025.
