Glassforce is the most advanced bottling manufacturing plant in Nigeria. Founded in 2002, after a substantial investment by the Chagoury Group, the company was established to meet the requirements of Nigerian breweries. The Company has expanded production at the plant to provide bottles of various sizes and shapes for a growing and demanding list of clients.
The company’s plant is located at Aba, southeast Nigeria. The plant is equipped with the latest technology and has two fully automated production lines with a combined capacity of 10 million bottles per month/120 million bottles per year.
Every bottle is subjected to three quality tests by state-of-the-art inspection machines as they pass down the production line. No other bottling plant in Nigeria has the technology available to Glassforce. The Aba plant’s warehouses have a storage capacity of 6-7 million bottles.
The following products, among others, use Glassforce bottles: Gulder Beer, Star Beer, Heineken, Maltina. Glassforce has also branched out into producing pharmaceutical bottles for the local pharmaceutical industry.
