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.
Nigerian Foundries Ltd (NFL) is the leading ferrous foundry group in sub-Sahara with a total installed capacity of 8,500 metric tons per year. The foundry complex is located at Sango-Otta, Ogun State Nigeria.
NFL in 1969, started as a small grey iron foundry, by the Barberopoulos brothers, at Ilupeju, Lagos. The Foundry was producing cast iron municipal castings and water pipeline fittings.
In 1990, following an expansion, of plant and machinery, NFL moved into the production of steel iron alloy castings. This was done by a technological transfer agreement with Messrs. Bradley & Foster of the United Kingdom who were specialists in wear and heat resistant alloy castings.
