COMPANY HISTORY

Nigeria Gas and Steel Limited started as a family owned business half a century ago in Kano. It was pioneered by the children of the late Mr. Faiz Moukarim. The company was then incorporated under the name Moukarim Metalwood Factory Limited in 1959.

It began operations with the production of furniture and allied metal products providing a major portion of the market in Northern Nigeria with quality furniture. To strategically position the company to meet the challenges of the 70's, the owners decided to diversify into the production of intermediate raw materials for the furniture industry by setting up, in Ikeja, Lagos, Mouka Foam in 1972, then Nigeria Gas Products Limited (Mouka Pipe) in 1976 (name was changed to Nigeria Gas and Steel Ltd. in 2007).
