The Umpisi Journey


Umpisi Group was first formed in 2007 as a consulting firm only called Umpisi Engineers.


Three years later (2010), our experience and market research favoured an idea of adding a construction plant hire arm


March 2011 Umpisi Group established the Land Surveying arm and in August 2011 the Construction division was formed.


By the end of 2012, the construction division had grown considerably to add Concrete Batching unit .
