In 2018, JMS was looking to expand into manufacturing by building and operating a state-of-the-art auto-disable syringe manufacturing facility in Kampala. The facility is expected to boast a capacity of over 100 million AD syringes p.a. and will be a pioneer in East and Central Africa, a region of over 150 million people that will form its catchment area.
