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.


In 1995/96 NFL purchased an old foundry in Otta, Ogun State with a land area of 54 acres.
In 2002/03 the Otta plant was renovated with new equipment and became operational by adding on an additional 6000 tons of metal capacity. By January 2014, the Ilupeju foundry was shut down and merged with the Otta foundry, giving it an ability to produce a total of 8,500 metric tons of castings.


NFL produces castings from 0.5kg up to 10 tons per single piece.
