Fifty years ago, Orascom Group started its operations in the Egyptian market as a family owned enterprise working in the construction business. Few years later, the Orascom Group evolved as one of the most successful companies operating in the construction business not only in Egypt, but on regional and international markets as well.
In 2007, Lafarge acquired the ready mix, aggregate and cement businesses of Orascom. This acquisition was one of the most successful deals in Lafarge history as it came to fulfill one of its key priorities, which is growing its business in developing countries. Lafarge continues to work very closely with Orascom and values the industry respect held by the Ready Mix Egypt name.
The local experience from Orascom combined with the world experience of Lafarge clearly makes Lafarge the "supplier of choice" for infrastructure and housing projects by customers in Egypt
