Established in 1974, MIC-IT is the only tool and die making a workshop in the country to support the Manufacturing sector with the design and production of tools, dies and moulds. MIC-IT also operates as a commercial factory and is one of the leading providers of engineering solutions for the local and regional Industrial sector through its Design and Engineering, Plastics Services and Industrial Training.
The Construction arm of MIC-IT was launched in 2016 and with the help of its Trainees and skilled Instructors, MIC-IT provides high quality, low-cost building and maintenance solutions to the construction Industry.
