Originally named Port Tewfik (or Port Tawfiq) after the then ruler Khedive Tewfik, the port was built in 1867 by the Suez Canal Company, and was part of its eponymous company town then at the outskirts of the town of Suez. It included a branch for the company and segregated housing for European management and Egyptian workers designed and built by French architects and contractors. Port Tewfiq was the third port town to be built by the company along the canal after Port Said and Ismailia.
