Borno’s PVC Pipe Factory Set To Commence Operation

Borno state has completed its PVC pipe factory. With the capacity to meet up the demand of the entire North East, stop purchases from Lagos, and still export enough to Chad.

Engineer Ibrahim Ali, a former Minister of State, Petroleum Resources and Coordinator of Borno Stainte’s industrialization program, says the PVC pipe factory which will begin to roll out within the week has the capacity to produce Chad’s one year demand in just one month.

The PVC pipe factory will produce all types of pipes such as conduit, water hose and 64 variants of pipes, making it the most comprehensive ever in Nigeria.

According to the former minister, “This investment is coming after extensive and elaborate research into the profitability of PVC pipes and how they are critical in making life less costly and less complicated. Nigeria is a nation that is making a head way in its diversification program and this places emphasis on giving attention to agriculture in order to lessen our dependence on oil.

He noted that although there is a number of PVC pipe factories in Nigeria, the one in Borno is the most comprehensive in the country because it is the only one operating six lines of production.

“All the six lines have been fine-tuned. The factory is 100% reliant on petrochemical elements and it may interest you to know that we currently procure all out raw materials from  neighboring Chad because even though we have four refineries in Nigeria, none is working at a capacity to supply us. The Kaduna Refinery alone would have been sufficient for all of our needs but because of the lack of production, we are left with no alternative than to source from Chad which is close to us.”, said, Engineer Ali.

He reiterated further, “We left nothing to chance. We cannot fix a factory as big and as ambitious as this without doing the necessary research from all perspectives. In fact, we will have about the best quality PVC products in the Nigerian market. We have the latest equipment, high quality mix material, the best hands, manpower, the market, commitment and the enabling environment to succeed. Another contributory factor is Governor Kashim Shettima’s sheer courage, political will, his vision and foresight to perceive a good business and his commitment as soon as his conviction is made up. Just take the casing and the pipes for boreholes that we are going to produce, the technology we deploy is such that will produce pipes for all types of boreholes to stand any pressure.”
