With the brand PEACETEX, UL-HWA Egypt for now has the capacity of 2m metre-tonne-second per month (MTS/month). 'We started exporting in June 2017, and our current plan is to increase the capacity by 1m MTS/month in the future,' he revealed.

The company employs 230 people, 99% of them are Egyptians and they hold most of the leading positions. The company's policy includes building capacities of its employees through the most skilled managers to become future professional leaders.
'Currently we do not a market in Egypt; we are exporting from Egypt to Turkey, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Libya, and Syria, but we are looking forward to selling our products in Egypt in the future,' he said.
The company will keep pursuing future-progressive business innovation in terms of its accumulated high technology and abundant experience, he noted, adding that the company's strategy seeks to increase customer, employee, and community satisfaction.
The Egyptian government facilitated some water, electricity and drainage issues the company was facing, he said, noting, "our project has limited resources, so usually we do not encounter any major problems, but we are very happy for the cooperation and support from the government.'
