Promoting The Growth of Industries

Who we are

Our story

Our Background

Uganda Manufacturers Association was originally established in the 1960’s at a time when Uganda had a young but vibrant industrial sector. However, the association went into abeyance in the years that followed largely due to the prevailing security situation in the country. It was later revived in April 1988 by a group of new industrialists led by the Late Dr. James Mulwana. Starting with only 26 members, the Association has since grown to 1,500 members and today boasts the accolade of being a premium association nationally and regionally, enjoying global recognition and respect, and being a self-sustaining business association. Uganda Manufacturers Association is the largest Business membership Organization representing the manufacturing sector in Uganda.
