It is with great pleasure that I announce today the official inauguration of our company DYNATECH Corporation in Egypt, as we aspire to become a new impetus that contributes to the advancement of automotive manufacturing industry in Egypt through transfer and localization of the latest technology of fiber-based multi-material lightweight construction.
Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) construction has recently dominated many industrial sectors such as aviation, automotive industries, renewable energies (Hydrogen, Wind& Solar energies) and some medical industries. In the automotive sector, especially electrical and hybrid vehicles, it was the substitution of metallic components with (CFRP) that created the optimal economic solution for saving energy and fuel consumption, thus reducing emissions.
Our company DYNATECH would like to introduce the technology of Light Weight Materials (LWM) in Egypt by creating successful business models through our partnerships with Composites United e.V., this strategy will re-define the LWM technology in Egypt as one of the most effective solutions assisting to tackle and overtake the current tough challenges of global climate changes.
During the past decade, the automotive manufacturing industry has witnessed major developments and transformations, represented in the transition from internal combustion engines to powertrain electrification and shifted from individual use to car-sharing service, until the currently available technology of autonomous cars.
DYNATECH aims to seize some of these opportunities and turn them into successful industrial projects locally in Egypt with partners who share our vision.
To achieve this vision, DYNATECH has a strategy of continuous technical support, thanks to our partners Composite United e.V in Germany, one of the world’s largest fiber-based multi-material lightweight construction network,
The members of Composite United e.V group incorporate the largest international companies, research, education, and training centers, all leaders in fiber-based multi-material lightweight construction.
Egypt had great success in the past few years in implementing economic reform plans and bold monetary policies through which high levels of economic growth have been achieved in a political and security stability; which in return created a secure investment environment with ROI returns, recently ranked as one of the highest ROIs among the emerging markets.
This is the reason that prompted us to launch DYNATECH today. We are extremely proud that this stable economic environment was also an incentive for the German Composites United e.V. to sign LOI with DYNATECH and they selected Egypt to be the first destination to launch their business in Africa & Middle East under the name of CU-Egypt Office.
The LOI signed between DYNATECH and Composite United e.V is for research, development, and establishment of projects in the light-weight component construction and CFRP, as well as training Egyptian cadres of engineering students and graduates.
Today after the end of pandemic followed directly by the war which led to unprecedented economic crisis, such kind of partnership became very necessary to fulfill the urgent needs of many countries in MENA region including Egypt to increase their local manufacturing footprint in order to reduce their dependency on imports and avoiding the High Risk consequences of supply chain disruption and stagflation. We believe this approach is consistent with the new trend of GoLocalization by transferring innovations and localize the advanced technologies into manufacturing oriented solutions in Egypt.
