This military factory is affiliated with the Ministry of Military Production. Military products include casting of hematite iron, grey iron, and steel. Civilian products are the same, in addition to precision casting.

Compared to other newly industrialized countries, Egypt's iron and steel and nonferrous metals industry is well-developed. The oldest two manufacturers are the National Metal Industries located at Abu Zaabal and Delta Steel at Mostorod, both established by the private sector in the 1940s. A third minimill, the Egyptian Copper Works has also developed since 1952 to provide the industry with a diverse range of iron and steel products from its 120 thousands ton plant capacity. The largest integrated steel mill was founded in 1954 - the Egyptian Iron and Steel Corporation - as a joint stock company with majority equity from the state. Located in Hulwan, the company has a work force of 22,770 and its capital employed reached L.E. 1.7 billion in 1995.
