Company Background

On 1st March 1983, George and Miriam McKnight purchased a small Dental Supply Company, in Kenya, and quickly diversified into pharma and surgical products – becoming the MacNaughton we know today. Independent Companies in Uganda and Tanzania were incorporated in 1997 and 2000 respectively. As the Group developed, so its position and influence strengthened in the region. Today, the MacNaughton Group, a pharmaceutical and medical agency house, is a recognizable brand, representing global pharmaceutical and medical device companies and operating in the East African capitals: Nairobi, Kampala and Dar es Salaam.
