On the 10th of January 2014, Nigerian Foundries Ltd officially signed with SSAB of Sweden and joined the HARDOX IN MY BODY exclusive worldwide members club. This privileged is only given to companies who have demonstrated a continuous track record of technical excellence to produce HARDOX parts with design stipulations for the Quarry, Cement, and Mining industries in Nigeria.

So, now besides being stockists of HARDOX plates, we produce a broad range of wear parts according to your application and with the support of SSAB we can find the best solutions for your wear problems. Our Engineering design department is in position to make drawings of your wear parts, improve on them and reproduce them out of various the HARDOX grades.

Last but not least, we wish to introduce SSAB’s Chromium Carbide Overlay Plates which we intend to stock very soon in Nigeria. Hardfacing overlay products are ideal for extremely severe abrasive wear in applications with moderate impact. This means that at Nigerian Foundries Ltd we can produce products with a combination of Hardox specifications and Hardfaced Overlay plates.
