Firm Unveils Machine Tools Factory For Oil And Gas
EVERY journey in life begins with a step. From conception of ideas to implementation stages, a business is designed to pass through different phases with the usual teething challenges.
But only dedication, commitment and well focused strategies would lead to the desired success.
This scenario can be likened to the story of Thompson & Grace Investment Limited (T&GIL), a 100 per cent indigenous engineering production Services Company located in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The success of the company, over the years, motivated the principals to review their investments by acquiring world-class engineering equipment that are fundamental to the future success in the oil and gas sector, as well as other important industries in the economy.
The company went further to ensure the development of human capacity with the establishment of an institute of technology that would repackage the manpower needed for the success of the industry. The outcome of the investment was unveiled to the business communities in Port Harcourt last week.
Dr. Ernest Nwapa, the former Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) was one of the many stake holders that inspected the complex on a vast expanse of land in the Rivers State capital, also last week.
Facilities at the complex includes a CNC multi-functional turning-boring milling machines for the production of complex higher precision machine parts, mega cranes and other lifting and fabrication equipment and a standard training institute.
Unveiling the facilities, Dr. Ernest Nwapa applauded the vision of the indigenous company, T&GIL, for providing services in machining and mechanical maintenance for the Oil and gas sectors of the economy, including Aviation, Marine, Mining and Agricultural sectors .
Nwapa described the engineering facilities as “a major addition to Nigeria’s capacity for manufacturing equipment”. He also expressed satisfaction that “T&GIT was out to create opportunity for active employment of Nigerians and make Nigerians to do things by themselves.
