LPK considers itself a successor of the Union of the Lithuanian Entrepreneurs, Industrialists and Businessmen (Lithuanian: Lietuvių prekybininkų, pramonininkų ir amatininkų sąjunga), established in June 1930. The Union ceased to exist in 1940 when Lithuania was occupied by the Soviet Union and all businesses were nationalized. The modern Association of Lithuanian Industrialists was established on June 17, 1989 (it was later renamed to the Confederation of Lithuanian Industrialists). The Association united manufacturing companies, banks, trade and commercial enterprises as well as educational and research institutions.
