A roof is an item that should last for at least 25 years. Thereby one should not compromise on quality. Everybody knows that not all suppliers in Nigeria have the interest of the customer in mind. In spite of all efforts of organisations like SON (Standards Organisation of Nigeria) still undergauged imported material is being used for roofing. This material is sold at low prices, but the consequences of putting it on a roof can be disastrous. Fraudulent competitors have even tried to copy the FAN inscription on the backside of the sheets. Always check if your roofing sheet has the FAN name and a production date imprinted on the backside. This printing is done by a machine and the letters are formed by small dots. One easily can see that the imitations are done by a rubber stamp. As one of the leading players in the roofing industry in Nigeria, we are constantly upgrading our systems and customer service. In the beginning of 2011 First Aluminium has taken the decision to focus its downstream activities on roofing sheets. Aluminium City is the brandname used for all roofing activities of First Aluminium. This strategic decision has paid off. Concentrating on our roofing customers has improved our closeliness to the customers. The upgrade of our rollformer in Pot Harcourt and Kaduna has been appreciated by our customers. In all 3 rollforming sites (Lagos, Port Harcourt, Kaduna) we now supply the wide-span, economy profile with wider coverage. Of course, as you can expect from First Aluminium, without compromising on strength or durability. As only First Aluminium sheets are used, the customer does not have to worry about distortion, leakages or fading of colours.
