African Foundries Limited (AFL) was established to support the accelerating growth in Nigeria by making the country self-reliant for steel rebars and eliminating its dependence on imported rebars. AFL is set up to reach a 0.5 million-ton per year capacity for high strength rebars and allied products.
AFL is fully committed to ensuring international quality standards and continues to meet and exceed all quality related expectations of its customers. AFL is the only steel company in Nigeria with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 accreditations from M/s RINA the Italy based certification agency.
AFL's commitment to quality is indicated by the decision to equip our plants with state of the art and high-tech manufacturing facilities, mostly engineered and supplied by Western European and Far Eastern suppliers.
