Who Are We

Ever since its establishment in 1977, the Industrial Engineering Company for Construction and Development (ICON), has been the pioneer leaders in providing all steel-sheets related industries in Egypt, located on 350,000 meter square in Wadi Hoof, Helwan, a strategically located industrial area of Cairo.

The company owns and operates several factories where utmost quality products are ensured by total quality management of end-to-end manufacturing of corrugated sheets, accessories, sandwich panels, steel purlins and guard rails. The company provides and operates building and unit projects manufactured from structures applied using its famous ICON sandwich panels and corrugated galvanized steel sheets. These units come in portable items such as the Caravan units. They also come in fixed units such as the Prefabricated building units.
As owners of long history and accumulative experiences, along with the sustainable development in such rare fields in Egypt; ICON became the sole solution for seekers of best quality in material and highest practice of installation for these very special structures.

Quality Assurance & Control

Raw materials

1 ICON’s MQA system “Materials Quality Assurance” has been implemented to ensure that all raw materials used in sandwich panel’s fabrication conform to the preset material specifications and that our suppliers are qualified to provide these materials with full compliance with that specification.
Moreover, a restricted “Quality Control System” is well established and implemented to check all material parameters compliance upon arrival and before releasing to production.
