“The new company took off with a fleet of high capacity haulage trucks that could cover all market routes nationwide” the statement, said, adding that the biscuits company announced a great progress in the work on its third phase factory expansion at the Agbara Industrial area.
The phase was commissioned by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in February last year with targeted completion phases.
“When we laid the foundation stone of the Beloxxi third phase expansion project in February 2018, we promised to deliver in 18 months. Today, we are within striking distance. And I can assure you that the installation of the production lines has been moving very fast to the finishing line of July 2019.
Other segments of the phase in place include the power sector and the baking oven, a wire mesh design created by Beloxxi and produced with modifications by the Italian giant, Imafoni” Ezeude, said.
The CEO said the wire oven which is its own creation is credence to ‘how talented our local engineers can be when exposed to the appropriate technologies and support.’
