Workers at the Zeetin Engineering, Abuja
The key to the industrialisation of Nigeria has been described as the focus and personal sacrifice of the elite of the country.
Mr Azibaola Robert, Chief Executive Officer of ZEETIN Engineering, a precision engineering, technology and heavy duty company, made this known during a facility tour on Friday in Abuja.
Precision engineering is concerned with designing machines, fixtures and other structures that have exceptional low tolerances, are repeatable and stable over time.
It ensures a longer running life along with less wear or fatigue, giving a better lifespan compared to manually manufactured parts.
Robert said that Nigeria would become the hub of Africa’s industrialisation when the appropriate and calculated measures were taken toward investment and research and development in Nigeria.
“Making Nigeria an industrial nation takes commitment and passion. Precision engineering is a capital intensive investment. I will have taken to buying private jets or yacht or any luxury lifestyle, but I chose to invest in this company.
“I felt why continue buying things ordinarily we should be manufacturing in Nigeria. Yes, we cannot invent the wheel, but we can use our research and develop what we can. Instead of importing completed items needed for industries, why not buy machines that can make and repeat these items.
“If a lot of wealthy Nigerians invest in such ventures, we can complement the various governments efforts to solve the challenge of unemployment and save scarce foreign exchange,” he said.
Precision machining relies on the use of advanced, computerised machine tools to achieve demanding tolerances and create complex geometric cuts with a high degree of repeatability and accuracy.
This can be achieved through the use of automated computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools.
Zeetin is a Nigerian precision engineering company that has built a state-of-the-art factory in Abuja to develop and advance technology to compete with the rest of the world.
It has installed the most sophisticated production machines in the metal works industry in Nigeria.
The company will function as an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for Nigeria and will be churning out full-scale industrial product for the Automotive, Aeronautic, Aviation, Railways, Marine, Agricultural sectors.
Robert said: “Zeetin strives to be to Nigeria what Toyota, Samsung, LG are to south Korea, or Boeing is to the U.S., or Mercedes is to Germany as industries of National pride.
“Zeetin shall be training several youths in areas of design and innovation ideas and bringing to reality those ideas by offering its hubs for youths to bring to reality their ideas in real products.”(NAN)
