About Membership

To fulfill the objectives for which it was established, it is essential that the Association is fully representative of manufacturing enterprises in Nigeria. Thus membership is open to manufacturing companies employing not less than ten persons in permanent establishment. Membership is corporate companies being the members and not just the individuals nominated to represent them. Membership is totally voluntary. The Association is always active in recruiting new members so as to make its representation even more comprehensive and effective. From a handful of few members at its inception, membership rose to 3000 industrial enterprises in 1978. Today the strength of membership is well above 2,000
