VEC Vision

To become the leading manufacturer, solution provider, as well as the engineering & repairing services expert in Egypt, the Middle East & Africa renowned for unparalleled quality and timely delivery.

OUR STORY — HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AT A GLANCE

VEC originated as an idea, stemming from an entrenched belief in the importance of private business to slowly evolve after two of its main founders decided to join a leading manufacturing company in 2011. Slowly, but surely, the idea crystalized as an innovative vision of a company that offers distinguished services, steeped in engineering excellence with valves at its core. The company’s mission was to add value to the Egyptian market while fulfilling an integral gap that was lacking at the time. The opportunity came to life when a leading company was in search for a specialized arm to implement maintenance work in a large Egyptian industrial project. The founders then decided to size the opportunity by launching VEC in 2016, setting unique strategies that put local and global leadership at their forefront.

The challenge was to establish a fully integrated company, capable of meeting the varied market needs while taking into account financing as a pressing hurdle. By finding the right people who share the same passion for excellence, VEC was able to successfully employ the highest calibers to formulate a professional team boasting technical, financial, practical and administrative expertise to set VEC on the right track.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of VEC’s team, the company has strongly emerged as a pioneering leader seizing opportunities to grow and finance itself, as well as finding the ideal place to launch its presence in Badr City’s Industrial Zone to be strategically located at close proximity to its clients, as well as Cairo’s New Administrative Capital.

Believing that excellence knows no boarders, VEC Libya was established in Ben Ghazi and the first supply order is on its way with a leading Gulf Company.

VEC is currently focusing on a strategic expansion plan to include Sudan, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia on its growing map.
