Launch of Phase Two of T & C Garments Production Facility

T-Group began in 1974 as a pioneer in Egypt’s automotive business as a sole agent and distributor of automotive components for several leading international brands.  Once established in the automotive sector, the original T-Group founder saw vast opportunity in the local textile market, with Egypt being a lead exporter of raw cotton material. Taking it a step further he established Cairo Cotton Center (CCC) a company that would do more than just export raw material, it manufactured and exported knitted garments.   Within a decade CCC became a regional leader in the production of knitted garments and by 2008 added more value to the textile industry by expanding to dyeing with the establishment of Cairo Dyeing Center (CDC). CDC would early on make large technological investments, which ensured this vertical integration’s success. With years of experience and vast knowledge in the textile industry, T-Group continued to expand and in 2010 established T&C Garments, a joint venture company with the purpose of manufacturing denim bottoms. Today T & C Garments is one of the country’s major success stories. In a short time frame it has become one of the largest players in the garment export industry and operates under licensing of major global brands, including Levi Strauss & Co, VF, Jones of New York, Zara, Uniqlo, Ann Taylor, amongst others.  T & C Garment’s international client roster is growing exponentially through the merits of the quality of the garments produced. In a few years, T&C Garments is positioned to be the main garment producer and exporter in Egypt. It is already the go to supplier for foreign clients looking for a reliable, modern, efficient, socially and environmentally responsible partner in the region.   Simultaneously the company invested in other areas where they saw major prospects, namely the real estate industry.  T-Group shareholders’ venture in the construction and real estate development market proved to be a successful one and eventually they established Green Hill Developments and T 15. T- Group’s real estate ventures now include a large portfolio of residential and commercial areas and are expected to grow exponentially in the coming years.
