West Africa's Bottle Leader Frigoglass Supplies Coca-Cola and Heineken While Providing Jobs in Nigeria in February's African Business Review

NORWICH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2012) - Frigoglass, the largest glass bottle producer in West Africa, has been meeting the needs of some of the world's most well-known beverage companies for decades.

A proud supplier to brands such as Coca-Cola, Heineken, Diageo, GlaxoSmithKline and PZ Cussons, it is no wonder that Frigoglass' reputation speaks for itself.

Falling underneath parent company Frigoglass, based in Greece, Frigoglass Industries Nigeria and Frigoglass PLC sell glass bottles, plastic crates, metallic crowns and ice cold beverage coolers for both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. As Financial Director, Prabhat Agrawl, explains, the company has a history of more than 30 years in Nigeria.

"Frigoglass has been in Nigeria many years and we know how to face challenges that the African environment and infrastructure can sometimes present. We have been able to offer quality products from day one, using global teams to deliver first class solutions."

The industry of glass making requires employees to possess a high skill level -- and Agrawl says that being the market leader in the region means the company has no difficulty in attracting staff. "We hire people at various levels and train in-house, with our training programmes being linked to a performance management system. Graduates from colleges and universities are welcomed."
