Innovation & Growth:  Express International Industries was established in 2001 with the objective of manufacturing all kinds of corrugated sheets and carton for the packaging material needs of its sister companies. Nevertheless excess production capacity was sold on the local market to a variety of clientele. By 2005 demand had grown many folds and production capacity could no longer match the demand, therefore a considerable investment in expansion was undertaken not only in production capacity but also in form of establishing state of the art high-tech production facilities.


A large investment was mad in a new locale spread over 25,000 M2 and located about 700 meters from its first site in the industrial zone of Abou Rawash.

A Fully Automated Production Line:
The new Facility boasts a fully automated production line capable of speeds up to 200 meters of carton sheets per minute or about 100 tons a day and totally programmable from the control room. It is the only machine of its kind in Egypt and the Middle East that is capable of producing 7 ply/layers carton.

Along side the 137 meter long corrugating line, these are two high speed state of the art “flexo” printers and die cutters with a combined output of 12,000 pieces per hour. These give the company added advantage of multi-color, high quality printing, speed and ever increasing market demand for innovative and timely printing solutions.

To insure strict quality control policies a lab was created in the heart of the production floor. The lab is responsible to test incoming raw materials to make sure that match the particular specifications demanded thereby insuring our clients get the best carton for their needs.

Serving with commitment:
The company’s main asset is its 350 employees who act in unison and are totally committed to provide the best carton solutions possible at the highest levels of integrity and customer dedication.

Today the company boasts an exhaustive client base both on the local and export markets from a variety of industries such as pharmaceuticals, ready made clothing, frozen and fresh food including produce, chemical and petroleum related in addition to ceramics, appliances, electronics and the moving industry.

In addition, the company also buys locally recycled paper sourced from the best manufacturers in Egypt thereby giving its clients a wide selection of options best suited for their needs.
