Since its establishment in the sixties of the last century, Alexandria shipyard has proved its ability to meet the challenges and overcome the obstacles starting from choosing the place of construction, selecting and installing the best equipment and devices and the subsequent challenges in preparing the manpower and the necessary cadres of technicians, engineers and managers to operate this new national edifice. The firm vision of the company during that period was (building and repairing the Egyptian national fleet) and concerted efforts turned that vision to reality and Alexandria shipyard became a pioneer in shipbuilding and repair in Egypt and the Arab region as well. Now, 50 years after the establishment of the company and its transition to work under the umbrella of the marine industries & services organisation of the Ministry of Defense, the company is witnessing a new awakening after the end of the ambitious development project aimed at increasing the production capacity of the company to reach 40000 tons of iron annually, all of that urging us not to only focus to maintain the leadership of local and regional production but also to expand to the international market and therefore we seek to cooperate with foreign shipyards and ship owners and maritime agencies around the world to ensure the success and progress to us and to our partners.
