Agbara Industrial Park.



MANUFACTURERS have since inception searched for suitable locations to produce their wares effectively.

In the early 70´s the visionary entrepreneur, the late Chief Adeyemi Lawson, created West Africa’s premier industrial hub in Agbara, just 26 km west of Lagos.

Rapidly this industrial enclave became the hotspot for a wide range of manufacturing companies, attracting local and international players to Agbara Industrial Park.

With a 454 Ha development, it is located between the two port locations of Lagos and Badagry, which is set to become West Africa’s largest deep-sea port. The industrial zone provides direct access to the Expressway that connects the commercial capital of Nigeria to the rest of the ECOWAS – Economic Community of West African States.

Agbara Industrial Park, the enclave that has been selected by a wide range of reputable foreign multinational and local manufacturing firms for five decades, including firms like Unilever, Nestlé, GSK, Shell, Procter & Gamble, Reckitt Benckiser, LG, Pharma Deko, VitaMalt, Beta Glass, Perfetti Van Melle, Evans Medical, Big Bottling Company, Nigerian Breweries, UAC, Suntory, Cometstar, Beloxxi, Corona School, more than 10 financial institutions and many other reputable firms.

As part of the LandAfrique portfolio, Agbara Industrial Park has been preparing during this pandemic period for a renewed post-Covid repositioning of its prime status within the industrial & logistics real estate sector.

The Lagos Badagry Expressway works that are about to be finalized are logically contributing to the upgraded accessibilities and intermodal connectivity of this world-class producing and manufacturing hub.
