Six decades ago, in 1962, Sami Saad & Co. was established, they started their road-trip with construction business. When Sami Saad & Co laid its first concrete foundation in 1962, Egypt was in the throes of a revolution. Its agricultural sector had already come under state control and now Gamal Abdel Nasser, the country's most iconic president, was nationalizing the industrial, financial and commercial powerhouses which drove the economy. Private industry was being co-opted by state planning authorities, but Sami Saad decided to establish a contracting firm with three partners, which he would spend five decades transforming into one of Egypt's largest holding companies.
In the last sixty years, Sami Saad cultivated a culture of loyalty and dedication at the heart of everything we do, and then drove us to diversify our business in collaboration with local and international partners. Today the holding company operates across four
sectors: engineering and contracting, automotive, food and beverage, and hospitality with more than 30 operating companies.
Sami Saad led us forward and then let us go, transforming his family business into a firm no longer limited by the capabilities of the latest generation.
