The Mansour Group
Mansour operations span internationally across several major industrial sectors and can be summarized into five main business divisions: automotive, capital markets, consumer and retail, industrial equipment, and services.
In relation to its global partnerships, Mansour has an unparalleled track record of successfully integrating the world's leading brands into a multitude of local territories, consistently delivering unwavering quality in all its ventures.
A name synonymous with excellence and family heritage, Mansour epitomizes the model of a successful family business that for decades has been a key player in shaping the Egyptian economy.
The Mansour success story unfolded over three gradual phases: establishment and integration into the market; attracting international brands to build successful partnerships with while introducing its own brands to Egypt; and having its eye firmly on the future - fast tracking the group to further success with its strong balance sheets and structured investment strategy.
It all began with one man; founder Loutfy Mansour who established the Mansour name as the quintessential example of how an Egyptian family business can burgeon the economy and make its country proud. Starting out in the cotton industry in the late 1940s, Loutfy Mansour had a sharp business acumen that laid the strong foundation on which his sons have lead the company to even further heights of success.
The Mansour’s capitalized on this advantage and established companies such as Mansour Automotive Company (MAC) and Mantrac, attracting large international dealerships and making a name for Mansour in both Egypt and abroad. Nearly 70 years after their father’s first steps into the business world, three brothers Youssef, Mohamed, and Yasseen - Mansour’s second-generation entrepreneurs, have lead the company to consolidated revenues of over $4 billion and a workforce of 38,000 employees.
Together they have directed the company towards numerous industries, mastering each one with their diverse set of skills: Mohamed, the sharp strategist behind the groups’ expansion outside Egypt; Youssef, the mastermind responsible for Mansour’s exemplar distribution tactics and Yasseen, the keen and strategic investor.
