According to the company, during the meeting, Arodi conferred with Tayebwa about the company’s 60-year anniversary celebrations among other important issues.

“The Uganda Baati CEO, George Arodi and his team also discussed more about policy formulations in the steel sector,” the company said in a brief statement.

Uganda Baati last month announce yearlong celebrations to mark 60 years of existence in the country.

According to Uganda Baati board of directors chairperson, Dr.Alan Shonubi , the 60 year journey has been fulfilling.

"Our journey goes back to the 1960's, in Tororo, as a business entity called Steel Works Company. The steel and aluminum industry was so lucrative then with minimal competition to the point when and for aluminum and steel products was greater than the supply. This led to the introduction of the first steel roll former machine in the company where we manufactured, and supplied different aluminum and steel products which even included saucepans, Dr. Shonubi said last month.

He explained that the company however got a setback in August 1972 when President Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of Indians and was able to return to the country after the NRA captured power.

"We were the first in the East African region to install an ultra-modern continuous galvanizing line, a testament to our commitment to technological innovation and excellence. We also became the first to introduce the ZincAL coating technology for all its roofing sheets to give the consumers the benefit of the product.”

The company also spoke of plans to dominate the  Southern Africa market.
