Dangote works to improve the skill levels of its staff by providing training opportunities through our own educational hub, the Dangote Academy, or through reputable institutions inside Nigeria and abroad.
The Dangote Academy was established in 2010 to provide training in technical and management skills for employees and people wishing to join Dangote. It was created in recognition of the fact that we cannot rely on universities and colleges to provide the very specialized technical and managerial training required to run major industrial factories such as ours, particularly in the large numbers of such people that we will need.
Dangote Group continues to grow its vision of becoming the leading provider of essential needs in Food and Shelter in Sub-Saharan Africa.
We continue to sustain and improve on our market leadership in Cement Manufacturing, Sugar Milling, Sugar Refining, Port Operations, Packaging Material Production and Salt Refining. In line with our philosophy, we will continue to provide the basic needs of Nigerians.
The future of manufacturing in Nigeria is very bright considering the huge endowment of natural resources, the abundant pool of skilled work force and the enormous market potential the Country offers to investors.
Dangote Group is well poised to harness these opportunities with relentless drive and commitment it took to become the leading player in its various markets. I commend the management team and staff of Dangote Group for their commitment and dedication to realizing the objectives of the Group, as we strive to reach greater heights.
