Modern Industries Limited
Modern Industries Limited is a group of three plants, all distinct and separate but complementary of each other. These include:
Established in the early 1960s, the furniture factory has continued to operate as one of the largest furniture manufacturing outfits in Guyana and the Caribbean. The factory can produce wooden, upholstered and metal furniture, innerspring mattresses, and convoluted and polyurethane foam mattresses.
The foam plant manufactures polyurethane high density foam. Some of this foam is used in the furniture factory for making upholstered goods, mattresses, pillows, cushions and other soft furnishings. The remaining portion is sold to other merchants and manufacturers. It has the capacity to adequately meet the needs of Guyana and, a significant proportion of the Caribbean.
The metal plant functions in conjunction with the furniture factory in the production of office and outdoor furniture, beds and cots, restaurant and auditorium seating. This entire operation presently provides employment for approximately one hundred and seventy men and women.
Over the years, we have acquired a forest and saw milling complex, comprehensive solar and humidifier dryers, lumber yard, machine shop, complete furniture manufacturing facilities, a foam plant with the latest technology in the Caribbean, and a layout of over 200,000 sq. ft. of furniture manufacturing and showroom space.
Our years of experience, permanent technology, and manufacturing process upgrade policy allow us to obtain high quality, exclusive designs, and innovative ideas to satisfy our customers at home and at the office, with pleasant environment and comfort.
Our corporate objectives are based in a vertical integration process allowing us proper control of all of our manufacturing steps – from raw material to finished product, assuring our products’ quality, environmental protection, and social benefit nationally and beyond.

Abary Cattle Ranch Company Limited
The Abary Cattle Ranch Company Limited is located on the right bank of the Abary River and stretches towards the Berbice River to the east. It is located twenty five miles inland of the Atlantic Ocean. It occupies an area of fifteen thousand acres, and is engaged in cattle rearing, rice cultivation and small homestead farming with workers living on the ranch. The herd count at last round-up was in excess of 3000, thus making it one of the largest cattle ranches on the Coast.
The main objective is beef production, even though a small milking herd is maintained. Cattle is shipped to the Georgetown Municipal Abattoir throughout the year. In order to maintain an optimum herd and reduce the incidence of in-breeding, we follow strict breeding practices and record keeping. In addition to this, much emphasis is placed on improved pastures and rotational grazing. Since the ban was removed on foot and mouth disease earlier, we are currently improving the present facilities to meet export market standards.
