Top 30 Manufacturing Companies In Kenya

The manufacturing sector in Kenya is dominated by foreign companies, both multinationals and local subsidiaries of multinationals. This has been the case since the 1960s, when the Kenyan government encouraged foreign investment in the country’s manufacturing sector.

The manufacturing industry has played a key role in Kenya’s economic development. Manufacturing companies in Kenya are producing products such as textiles and apparel, foodstuffs, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, rubber products and plastics.

The manufacturing industry in Kenya has grown rapidly over the past two decades, with many new factories being built and existing ones expanding their operations. However, there are still some challenges facing this sector.

The main challenges facing manufacturers in Kenya include high production costs, lack of skilled labor, lack of financing and poor infrastructure.

In order to overcome these challenges, manufacturers should take advantage of the benefits offered by the Kenya Industrial Estates (KIE) Act which allows them to have their own factories within a secure environment.

The major products produced by manufacturing companies in Kenya include textiles, food processing, beverages, furniture and fixtures as well as metal products. The main export destinations for these products include Uganda, Tanzania and South Africa. The manufacturing industry in Kenya contributes about 15% to the country’s GDP.
