Founded in 1915 as the British Manufacturers' Association (BMA), it became the National Union of Manufacturers (NUM) in 1917 and finally, in 1961, the National Association of British Manufacturers (NABM). It came to resemble, and even to rival, the FBI in providing services and national representation for its members, but it was particularly strong among small and middle-sized firms. The National Association of British Manufacturers merged with the Federation of British Industries and the British Employers' Confederation in 1965 to form the Confederation of British Industry.
