The Group
Company history


The Sembule Group has very humble beginnings. The original company Sembule Steel Mills Limited was founded in 1971 by two brothers Mr. C. C. Sembuya (right) and the Late W. H. Buwule (left). In fact the name Sembule comes from the combination of their last names Sembuya and Buwule.

Sembule Steel Mills Limited started with a few wire-nail manufacturing machines from WAFIOS. And in a few years it had grown into one of the largest wire-nail manufacturing companies in Uganda. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s the company continued to grow and increase its product lines from wire nails to welding electrodes and to diversify into the real estate business.

In the 1990s, Sembule diversified into banking, insurance and electronics. Sembule Steel Mills Ltd on the other hand was able to increase its product lines even further by introducing roofing and fencing products.

Throughout this period the Sembule Group managed to keep its lead as the group that provides the highest quality products in the region as well as offering the best customer service in the industry.

Today the company is still completely owned and run by the Sembuya and Buwule families.
