The Company was originally established in 1996 under the name of BICC Egypt as a joint venture between BICC UK and Egyptian investors. It was the only multinational cable manufacturer in Egypt. In September 2010, General Cable, a Fortune 500 company and the leading manufacturer of wire and cable with 38 production facilities around the world, acquired BICC Egypt and rebranded it General Cable Egypt. In May 2016, as part of its strategy to refocus on the American and European markets, General Cable sold the factory to a group of investors. The Company gained its original brand name BICC ELECTRIC.
