The Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF), formerly known as the Singapore Manufacturers' Association, was first established in 1932. Its main aim is to champion the Singapore manufacturing sector. Our mission is to represent the interest of the Singapore manufacturing community and to drive its competitiveness and sustainable growth through serving industry-specific needs.
SMF is supported by 10 industry groups to serve diverse industry-specific needs, as well as 6 Centres of Excellence to offer our members a holistic approach towards improving competitiveness, upgrading skills and capitalising on new technologies. With a membership of over 3,000 corporate members ranging from MNCs to SMEs, SMF carries out a myriad of activities to enhance the competitive edge of our members.
As a not-for-profit organisation, SMF is governed by a Council whose members hail from some of Singapore's most established and progressive companies. Through our strong links with the government, we are suitably qualified to represent our members objectively and to facilitate communication between the government, foreign delegates and the manufacturing community.
