Cormart Nigeria, subsidiary of TGI Group and leading chemical and food raw materials supplier, will begin production of sandwich panels in January for the poultry industry.
Samuel Olarinde, Cormart’s Business Development and Strategy Manager, said: “The sandwich panels will be produced using state-of-the-art technology with quality materials sourced from the best in the industry…
Dr Johannes Flosbach, Cormart’s General Manager, noted: “The difficulty in the poultry sector, as in most other industries, is growing demand and limited production capacity. As of today, the sandwich panels used in large-scale poultry operations are mostly imported, and this has an impact on production costs, schedules, and growth plans. We want to increase local manufacturing capacity to boost import substitution, and contribute to the Nigerian economy by saving on foreign exchange.”
Sandwich panels are structural composites that consist of a low-density insulating core sandwiched between two layers of skin, typically made of steel or aluminium.
They are employed in constructions where superior thermal insulation, high strength-to-weight ratio, humidity control, and strict hygiene requirements are required.
