About Us

Background

The Namibian Association of Metal Fabrication (NAMF) is a voluntary association that exists to represent, promote and grow the interests of its members, legally involved in the value chain of Namibia’s metal fabrication industry. The association is a permanent platform for the metal fabrication industry as a result of the November 2016 launch of the 10 key sectors growth strategies under Namibia’s Growth@Home industrialisation strategy by the then Minister of Industrialisation, Trade and SME Development (MITSMED) , Hon. Immanuel Ngatjizeko . The growth strategy implementation for the metal fabrication industry resulted in the setting up of a Steering Committee that developed the 2017 Annual Operation Plan (AOP), advocating for the the establishment of a sector–specific association for the metal fabrication industry. NAMF was hence founded on 22 September 2017 after engagement with some key players in the metal fabrication sector and officially inaugurated on 18 April 2018 by the Deputy Permanent Secretary of MITSMED, Dr Michael Himavindu.

Mission:

To champion the growth and development of the entire metal fabrication value chain in Namibia, and to further advocate for and represent the interests of our members in particular and that of the metal fabrication industry at large.

Vision:

To be the preferred representative and advocate of interests, and driver of growth for the entire metal fabrication value chain in Namibia.
