This award is a great honour and it represents the success LADOL has achieved thanks only to the 18 years of hard work and dedication of our founders and our staff. 

LADOL is all about team work and I’m very proud to lead the men and women who work at LADOL. Our team work shined through not only in the success of the Egina project but also in achieving our ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 last year. We also thank our clients Total and Shell, which have shown their faith in LADOL and supported genuine local content in Nigeria.

“As a company that is 100% indigenous Nigerian, we sacrificed for local content for almost two decades and we still have to face and overcome many challenges. Our commitment remains unwavering.

“Going forward  we hope to work and collaborate with a growing number of indigenous companies spread across the country and the region, so that together we can help make Africa the growth engine for the world.”
