NFL has had to reposition itself by moving from a casting business into a total solutions enterprise. This is achieved by using technology to cut costs, streamlining its operations, speeding up innovation cycles & entering into new ventures working in synergy to provide products & services tailored to the individual needs of her clients.
In 1990, following an expansion, of plant and machinery, NFL moved into the production of steel iron alloy castings. This was done with a technological transfer agreement with Messrs. Bradley & Foster of the United Kingdom who were specialists in wear and heat resistant alloy castings. In 1995/96 NFL purchased an old foundry in Otta, Ogun State with a land area of 54 acres. Following another major expansion,in 2002/03 the Otta Plant became a reality adding to its installed capacity of 2,500 tons an additional 6,000 tons of metal capacity.
