A little bit of History
Founded by the State of Israel in 1961, IBC's roots are interwoven with the development of Israel and its' economy.
Industrial Buildings Corporation Ltd., (Tel Aviv stock exchange, code: 226019), also known as IBC, was founded by the State of Israel in 1961. IBC’s history is interwoven with the development of the Israeli economy and society as it responded to the demands to initiate and create industrial, commercial and office complexes as well as to provide infrastructure for residential developments.
In 1988 IBC became a publicly traded company and in 1993 the Israeli government finalized the privatization of IBC by selling off all of its remaining shares in the Company to the public.
Consequently, IBC joined the numerous and diverse companies owned by the Fishman Group, which holds 70.7% of IBC shares.
