Universal Mining & Chemical Industries Limited is a wholly Zambian owned company, registered in Zambia in 1989, and a subsidiary company under the distinct umbrella of the TRADE KINGS GROUP OF COMPANIES.

UMCIL promotes the value addition to Zambian domestic raw materials and has an integrated Iron and Steel Plant at Kafue.


UMCIL has set up the steel works in a phased construction scenario and in a backwards integration starting with re-rolling mill using initially scrap as raw material. An Integrated Iron and Steel Plant, completed in June 2016, produces more than 200,000 tonnes of steel rolled products per annum of different profiles, sizes and length for first domestic consumption and then for export using 100% domestic raw materials. The company has recently announced that it is embarking on a project to start mining Iron Ore to be used as part of the raw materials.
