POLYPROPYLENE SACKS MANUFACTURING
Dangote Agro Sacks Ltd was established in 1998 as a Private Limited Liability Company to produce both woven and laminated polypropylene sacks. It commenced operation with monthly output of 5million bags, not only to meet the requirements of unit companies within the Dangote Group but also the commercial requirements of external customers. As dictated by the growing market requirements, production output was raised to 14million in 2001 and 31million in 2008 producing from two (2) sites ADSTAR and AGROSACKS in Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria. Presently, the company is reputed to have the highest capacity in the World, not only that, it produces with the most modern state-of-the-art machinery.
In May 2001, Ad-Star factory started production and it has the capacity of producing 108 million bags per annum. The factory is exclusively for the production of cement bags which contains latest robotic Ad Star convertex machines. These bags are produced without any stitching. It is provided with an automatic valve. The technology of plastic fusion is applied in these bags. This helps the industries to increase their packing production enormously. In addition, it is also stronger than paper bags. We also manufacture Jumbo Bags, Open Market Bags and Shopping Bags.
The investment of the company is not only in machinery but also on people, through multi-faceted training. This has seen the company developing into the foremost provider of flexible woven polypropylene sacks, mat and twine in Nigeria. The Chartered Institute of Marketing of Nigeria awarded us the Best Bag Manufacturing Plant in Nigeria for the year 2000 and The West Africa's Best Packing Bags Award was given to us for the year 2001 by African Marketing It is in recognition of this that the company has earned the prestigious NIS/ISO 9001-2000 Award in 2003
