Ama Brewery waxing stronger @ 10

The Nigerian Breweries Plc state of the art Ama brewery located in the Coal City of Enugu state has continued to wax stronger as it celebrated the tenth anniversary recently, the 30MHL capacity Brewery which cost a whopping 220 million Euros (N30 billion) to build in 2003 has created employment for over 1,000 workers, both full time employees, contractors and outsourced.


The occasion availed the company the opportunity to showcase the facility to journalists with one remarkable feature being its impeccable condition even after ten years of operation. Continue...
 

Speaking at the tour, Mr. Kufre Ekanem, Corporate Affairs Adviser Nigerian Breweries Plc said: “At a time like the 10th Anniversary of Ama Breweries, it is critical that we pull our friends together for two reasons. First, that 10 years after commissioning, the Ama brewery is still top-notch because of it is world-class facility.Also, the quality of staff here can match their contemporaries from any part of the world. The heritage of forthrightness and forward thinking is a tradition with Nigerian Breweries. This is why we have decided to celebrate the milestone with our media partners and friends.” 

In his own remarks, Mr.John Richardson, Brewery Manager informed Journalists present that the milestone is a direct result of Nigerian Breweries Plc’s relentless effort to consolidate its leadership position in the beer market.  “For Ama Brewery, the past 10 years in the Nigerian market has been a success story. The decision to establish the facility here in Enugu was a very good business decision because it has resulted in 10 years of very strong business and community relationships. This success story is made possible by Heineken and the indigenous communities here in Enugu.”

He stressed that the company has maintained its high standard by concentrating on the development of its workforce: “Nigerian Breweries has been in the Nigerian market since 1946 and has trained and retrained hundreds of thousands of workers in the process. For the last 10 years Ama has also created valuable employment for young and enterprising youths in Nigeria. By our sheer size we are able to employ people full time and have other adjuncts like contractors, loaders and others. We are here for the long haul.”

Commissionedon October 24 2003 by former President Olusegun Obasanjo, the facility described by some as “the jewel in the crown of Heineken NV(Nigerian Breweries' parent company)was until recently Africa’s biggest brewery and is reputed to be one of the most modern breweries in the world and the first of its kind in Africa. It is the Company’s sixth brewery and the second to be established in the eastern heartland,following Aba brewery,also owned by Nigerian Breweries. The Brewery boasts of the best cutting edge technology and world class standard processes. With an installed capacity 30MHL or one million carton units per week, it is also equipped with an ultra-modern waste water treatment plant in line with safe manufacturing practices world-wide.

The brewery is located outside the Coal City.It is located at 9th Mile Corner, Ngwo in Udi Local govt.The town is about fifteen minutes drive (depending on your vehicle) from Enugu.Thank me later. Furthermore, due to the high quantity of carbon found in the water in that area ,it has not been operating at it's maximum capacity.The sister brewery in Aba had to be reopened.(The Aba brewery was shut down due to the squabble btw OBJ and Orji Uzor Kalu)

Jude said...

Don't say what you don't know. Ama has the purest waterbed in Nigeria, that's why Heineken chose the location before granting Nigerian Breweries permission to locally brew Heineken. None of the six brewery location- lagos, Aba, Kaduna, Ibadan and Ama, only Ama and later lagos can brew Heineken. B/c the standard must be international. Aba brewery was closed b/c when Ama was commissioned with 30MHL capacity, NB Plc thought it could cater for the regional demand. But Nigeria beer market keeps growing, hence need to reopen Aba brewery and further acquisition of Sona Breweries (Ota/Kudenda) and Life Breweries (Onitsha). Guinness has acquired huge mass of land around Ama to build the one of the biggest breweries in Africa (nay dispute with local community), Coca Cola is there, Old Enugu brewery and Aqua Rapha company etc due purity of water bed in Ama. You're right about the distance though.
PS: I'm a staff in Lagos brewery. Gracia
