BEMMA's Achievements:

BEMMA has been playing a very important role for long time to modernize and setting up all unplanned and scattered Electrical Industries in a particular place. At last BEMMA was succeeded to establish an Electrical Industrial Estate in 1993 under the name and style "BIDDUT SHILPA NAGARI" on 10 acres of land allotted by RAJUK at Shayempur-Kadamtoly Industrial Estate 2nd phase, about 7 K.M away from Dhaka zero point towards Narayangonj. The total land was divided into 67 Industrial plots and allotted to the members. Small, Medium and Large Industrial units are so far established in at last 60% of the plots. From its long dedicated service BEMMA experienced a problem which is a building of its own. To redress the problem BEMMA purchased an Industrial plot measuring 5 kathas building on the plot and complete construction up to 3rd floor so far, and invested about Tk. 4.00 Crores in it. To meet the increasing demand of the members a second Electrical Industrial Project is under process of materialization with the active co-operation of BSCIC, Dhaka.
