Cable Egypt was established in 1996 under the name of BICC Egypt as a joint
venture between BICC UK and Egyptian investors. Then, it was the only
multinational cable manufacturer in Egypt.
In September 2010, General Cable
acquired BICC Egypt. Headquartered in Cairo, the company manufactures a wide
variety of wire and cable products for the electrical markets, including
low-voltage insulated power and control cables, building wire, instrumentation
cable, halogen-free power and control cables, and overhead power cables.
