NFL was started in 1969, by the Barberopoulos brothers, at Ilupeju, Lagos. It was then a small grey iron foundry producing cast iron municipal castings and water pipeline fittings.

Over a fifty years of excellence, the Company has become the leading foundry group in sub-Sahara which has two operational foundries, a fabrication yard and additive manufacturing facilities.

Throughout the fifty year period, after eight expansions, the NFL Group has repositioned itself from a casting business into a total solutions enterprise. This it achieved by using innovative technology to cut costs, streamlining its operations, speeding up innovation cycles and entering into new ventures with foreign companies.


The ferrous and non-ferrous foundries have installed capacities respectively of 8,500 and 3,500 metric tons per annum. The Group’s complex is located on 56 acres of land at Sango-Otta, Ogun State, Nigeria.


Today, NFL produces castings ranging from 0.5kg up to 10 tons per single piece. Our ongoing Titan Expansion project will be completed by the end of 2020 and will make the NFL Group the reference point in Africa for Additive and Digital manufacturing.
