We look back to Eng. Osman, the founder of the Arab Contractors, with a great admiration and gratitude. His foresight was able to comprehend the capabilities of the Egyptian workforce. Consequently; Egyptian contractors were able to contribute in many fields including bridges. As an example his drastic, yet planned, decision to construct bridges


by Egyptians was a successful attempt to break the monopoly of foreign contractors in this technical challenging engineering specialty. Projects constructed allover Egypt, Middle East, Africa, were proves of the Egyptians workforce capabilities.
