Moreover, the company was the official licensee for Honeywell in Egypt until it was able to acquire a licence for manufacturing inside Egypt. It sent a number of workers to the company’s labs in France, and the factory was established in accordance with the French specifications. After that, the group developed the brake fluid brand name ‘FORMA’ . It also offers other products, such as radiators, batteries, grease, power steering fluid, and hydraulic fluid.
