A word from our Chairman

“Our mission is to maximise our collective potential by relentlessly pursuing market innovations and business opportunities in niche, transitional and emerging markets. We have delivered this commitment for over 48 years by investing successfully in people, products, technology and opportunities, all over the world.”

The company was started in 1971 by my father, Adel Gabr. He founded the Adel Gabr Consultant Company following a highly successful diplomatic career. The company played a key role in promoting Egyptian trade as the economy began to open up. That pioneering tradition has been maintained through the years and in 1991 the company evolved into ARTOC , a conglomerate with an international outlook. From an initial focus on the Egyptian economy, the group now conducts business all over the world.

After 48 years of investing and developing traditional industries including real estate, engineering, manufacturing, trade, consumer products and publications, the focus of the group has moved and continues to move into the direction of technology, innovation and creativity. ARTOC is undertaking this strategic shift by investing in start-ups and mature technological companies, and everything in between.

Our focus is not only on the present but is even more inclined towards the future as the world we live in today is changing at a fast pace. With the rapid development of artificial intelligence, machine learning and Internet of Things, we need to know the world of tomorrow, today.
