The country definitely has its companies, and as far as manufacturing goes, there is no shortage of companies in Nigeria; you would agree to that when you see the list of manufacturing companies in Nigeria below.
It is just not about the quantity, of course; the quality (and size) of these companies also matters,
This is why I’m focusing on more expansive manufacturing companies, with a wider range of products.
The Dangote Group
This is a complete no brainer; virtually everybody in the country knows the name, and that is primarily due to the fact that they are one of the biggest manufacturing company currently operating in the country.
Also, without a doubt, they are the most popular, since everyone use their products at any one point in time.
They have built themselves,
and diversified so much that they are regarded as the biggest conglomerate company in the whole West African region.
The Dangote Group is into Oil and Gas, Building & Construction, Food & Beverage, and so on.
They’ve come a long from 1981,
when they were founded by Alhaji Aliko Dangote.

Nestle Nigeria PLC
Nestle Nigeria PLC is also a big manufacturing company here in Nigeria, and it was founded way back in 1957.
Their major area of production is food & beverages, and they have consistently been at it for many years.
Nigerian Breweries PLC
No list of manufacturing companies in Nigeria would be complete without the inclusion of the Nigerian Breweries PLC.
Not only is it one of the oldest manufacturing companies in the country, it is one of the best.
They’re into Beverage production (they are a brewery company, afterall),
focusing more on beers and energy drinks.

Flour Mills of Nigeria
In Nigeria, we have the Flour Mills of Nigeria which is regarded as one of the most profitable manufacturing companies right now.
One thing about the Flour Mills of Nigeria is that they don’t just make flour based products;
they are segmented into three actually – Animal foods, Human Foods, and Bagcos.
Unilever Nigeria PLC
You know Close-up? Vaseline? Lipton? I’m positive that lot of people already use these products,
and the manufacturing company from where they came is Unilever Nigeria PLC.
