The factory, built on a total area of 114,000 sqm, boasts Turkish investments exceeding $100m. Beko Egypt holds the distinction of being one of the first industrial facilities in Egypt to obtain a golden licence, granted by the government to accelerate project implementation. The company’s strategic vision includes expanding investments within Egypt and exporting over 60% of production to global markets. The initial phase of the factory focuses on producing home appliances, including refrigerators and ovens, with environmentally friendly and energy-saving technology, achieving a production capacity of approximately 1.2 million devices annually.

Today, it boasts a network of over 600 authorized distributors throughout Egypt.
