AWICO Engineering Company Ltd is a Liability Company that was incorporated in Uganda on 11th January 2005, to provide services in the water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Sector, Road Construction and Rehabilitation of Buildings, Mechanical Works and also engages in Trade and supply.
The establishment of AWICO hatched as a small metal fabrication workshop on Ogwanguzi Road, Plot 2, Lira Municipality, with the aim of having a company that could unite a group of five persons with common vision. The five Directors then agreed to generate a name from the Luo word AWICO which means ‘head of men’. It then agreed that the word be written as AWICO.
