Who We Are
HitekNOFAL Solutions started its activities in Egypt over three decades ago as a Communication Network Solutions provider. The company obtained its first ISO 9001 certificate in 1997.
In 2000, the company launched its first factory to produce Electric & Data Wiring Systems, and started expanding into the regional markets in Africa and the Middle East.
In 2018, HitekNOFAL Solutions launched its own fiber optic manufacturing facility to produce both fiber optic cables and accessories.
Today, HitekNOFAL Solutions delivers Smart Turnkey Infrastructure Solutions, providing its customers mainly with FTTx, Fiber Sensing Solutions, Converged IP Networks, Security, and Data Centers.
The company’s products, solutions, and services support a wide range of economic sectors, namely ICT, Oil & Gas, Security & Defense, General Contracting, and Transportation.
HitekNOFAL Solutions success relies on its extensive experience, its locally manufactured products & value-added solutions, and last but not least, its high caliber employees whose continuous training enable them to implement the latest technologies.
Word from the CEO
Businesses are the fundamental elements of the economy of any country. Periodically, every state experience economic ups (called prosperity) and downs (called recessions and sometimes even depressions); so does the world-economy. These changes can be motivated either financially or politically or otherwise. However, after each cycle, recovery brings about significant changes, substantial development, innovative technologies, and a totally new societal setup. This is what we can then call a reset.
Addressing you in the early phase of a worldwide pandemic, and viewing things retrospectively, I remember a great number of crises, which ultimately became the starting point for a dynamic impulse and definitely ushered the world into new eras of technological transformation. When I launched HitekNOFAL Solutions 33 years ago, the world was still experiencing the Banking Crisis of the 80s (better known as "Savings and Loan crisis").
Ever since, the world has experienced the economic crises of the 90s and the early 2000s, plus the Great Recession of 2007-2009. The main feature of each crisis was the temporary interruption of capital accumulation; but each time, the economy recovered and new technologies reinvigorated the business world.
That is why I have reasons to believe that we, at HitekNOFAL Solutions, are now ready for the next dynamic recovery of the economy and the forthcoming, technological transformation of our societies. We have shaped two clusters of our solutions portfolio in order to address the most fundamental needs of tomorrow's smart cities, namely Smart Infrastructure Solutions and Security Solutions.
With the expected global recovery, our physical and digital worlds will become more intertwined than now; digitalization will therefore have to enable smart cities in terms of sustainability, mobility, security and opportunity, while managing the environmental impact and urban resilience. Tomorrow's smart urban agglomerations will consist of innumerable, interconnected systems that will have to overcome complex challenges related to the transportation, energy, water and waste management, communication, information distribution, and eventually emergency cases.
The new world, which is expected to emanate from the present crisis, will rely on intelligence and analytical capability, integrated communications and technology, multi-agency collaboration, and shared command & control. The 4th Industrial Revolution will be unfolded in its entirety, transforming the way we live even more dramatically than the earlier ones.
Our strategic direction and roadmap fully empower us to provide our current and prospect customers -at the local and regional levels- with FTTx Solutions; Safety & Security Solutions; Fiber Optic Sensing Solutions; Next Generation Networks; Unified Communication and Collaboration Solutions; Data Center Solutions; IoT Solutions; Wiring Systems; and Professional Services and Training.
I am therefore confident that, after we experience a breakdown of labor markets in the next months, we will see new, smart urban centers arise and bring about different features of global economy, other forms of international connectivity, and diverse concepts of labor market, such as telecommuting. Personally, I don't think the existing economic policy paradigms will be of further value or use, so the technical know-how and the technological innovations will determine even more markedly the new shape of the world economy.
It becomes self-evident that, similarly with the aftermath of the Oil crisis of the 70s, there will be a spatial aspect of the present crisis. Pretty much like major investors abandoned the traditional industrial centers in Northern England and the American Middle West in the late 70s and shifted their focus toward the then leading financial centers, present urban centers will be devalued and new ones will surface due to Internet, interconnecting, and knowledge-based work. Then, the stronger this crisis is, the more dynamic the new beginning will be!
Will we, in Egypt and Sub-Saharan Africa, view this world-making event as a global turning point?
Will we take it as an opportunity to effectively drive the recovery towards new concepts of interconnection?
It depends on how smart the existing business leaders will prove to be in a new world, which as we already defined it at HitekNOFAL Solutions before more than a decade, will be … an even smaller place!

As early as the 2000s, we identified e-learning as a critical field and over the years, we greatly contributed to the cause of e-learning in Egypt. We co-organized and co-sponsored back then with the American University in Cairo (AUC) a yearly International Conference on e-learning applications. The pioneering events were held under the auspices of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, and through themed speeches, innovative presentations, and animated debates shedding light on, and providing guidance about, the multifaceted advantages offered by e-learning applications.
As social responsibility forms an integral part of our culture, we launched diverse educational outreach activities, involving school children's tutorship in Zahraa El Maadi. Furthermore, we contributed to Maadi urban embellishment and launched several programs for Green Zahraa El Maadi.
Our ISO-based value-added services include initial technical consultation, site survey, solution design, project management, procedure auditing, installation & weekly progress reports, testing & commissioning, and delivery of complete documentation, as requested.
In addition, we carry out key field activities, notably fiber optic splicing, SM/MM fiber optic attenuation measurement through use of OTDR, and fiber optic network monitoring.
Our comprehensive portfolio of services and technical support programs, in addition to our more than 3-decade long field experience, contributed to our recognition as a market leader in field service optimization.
