H.B. Fuller recently announced a strategic investment to build a new facility in Cairo to support customers’ increased demand in the fast-growing markets of Egypt, Turkey, the Middle East, and Africa. According to the company, the new factory will become a regional supply hub and a center of manufacturing excellence for adhesives serving the hygiene, packaging, labelling, paper converting, and graphic arts industries, among others.
“Egypt has naturally become a main gateway to the region and with the new plant, we will extend our current leadership in Egypt and Turkey and grow our competitive position across the emerging markets of Middle East and Africa,” said Harsh Gupta, H.B. Fuller’s managing director for India, Middle East and Africa. “Our expanded presence in Cairo, with a high-tech site designed with future growth in mind allows us to double our production capacity and advance our technologies. This investment represents our commitment to better serving our customer base in close proximity to where they operate, for example in the markets for hygiene and packaging.”
H.B. Fuller reports that the production facility will fulfill industry-leading sustainability standards. With a gross area of 37,000 m2 in a two-story building, the planned site will be built at the CPC Industrial Park in the 6th of October industrial city in Cairo. The facility is expected to commence full production in the last quarter of 2022.
