The Union de Industrias Militares (UIM, English: Union of Military Industries) is the state owned military-industrial complex in Cuba. It is responsible for the repair of the weaponry and technology of the ground, air and naval units of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces as well as the production of light weapons for infantry, ammunition, mines and other equipment. The UIM also devotes part of its production and service capacity to serving other requirements of the Cuban economy.[1] By 1996, some 30% of the UIM's responsibilities were for the civilian sector.[2] As of 2013, the UIM utilises 67 sites across Cuba[3] controlling about 230 factories and companies.[4]
