Western Assam sans any industry worth naming in last century but then under the British era, a match factory was set up at Dhubri by a Swedish Company named  as Assam Match Company ( Amco) in 1925.  It was a lone industry in Western Assam till Bongaigaon Refinery and Petrochemical Limited (BRPL) which now known as OIL Bongaigaon Refinery (BGR), came into being in 70s.

Again due to change of ownership of Amco , it came to be known as Western India Match Company ( Wimco), when Jatia group of Company  took over all the five match factories in India – Dhubri ( Assam), Calcutta, Madras (Chennai), Bombay (Mumbai and Baraily ( Uttar Pradesh) in 1979
