Lafarge in Nigeria Company Profile
Lafarge enjoys doing business in Nigeria and will continually invest in the Nigerian economy whilst building on its values to make the best cement and concrete solutions available in all parts of the country – not just the best cement and concrete solutions, but its building expertise as well.
Nigeria offers great potential for construction, due to a rapid population growth and urbanisation, generating large needs for housing and infrastructure and construction, and financial capacities to fund this growth. Our operations started with Cement in 2001 with the acquisition of Blue Circle. Today, we have 8.5 MMT production capacity in Nigeria, with 4.5 MMT in WAPCO (Ogun State), 1 MMT in Ashaka (Gombe State), 2.5 MMT in Unicem (Cross Rivers State) and 0.5 MMT in Atlas (Rivers State).
Our Concrete operations started in 2011 with Lafarge Readymix Nigeria and the objective was to provide quality concrete solutions designed to meet the specific needs of today’s builders. Readymix leverages on the Group’s 50 years of experience in innovative concrete solutions. Today, Readymix Nigeria has 4 plants and is growing rapidly.
The vision of Lafarge in Nigeria is to be the most trusted and preferred partner of Nigerian construction professionals and home builders by delivering cement and concrete solutions that are best in quality, environmentally sustainable and nationwide available at affordable cost.
