The first record of a Federation of Industries of the State of Maranhão dates from November 26, 1954, when an entity of this name was founded and with the purpose of protecting and defending the interests of the Maranhão industrial class, representing them with the competent authorities. The FIEMA, then created, worked until the year 1965, when the military government revoked its Trade Union Charter, thereby extinguishing it.
On September 27, 1968, a group of Maranhão entrepreneurs organized with the purpose of restoring the Federation, which, integrated into the Regional Departments of the Social Service of Industry (SESI-MA); the National Industrial Learning Service (SENAI-MA) and the Euvaldo Lodi Institute (IEL-MA), remains active in favor of the Maranhão industry, as a leading institution of The Sistema FIEMA.
