Fatgbems Diversifies To Real Estate, Agro Allied Ventures

Fatgbems, a leading force in Nigeria’s downstream oil sector, is set to undergo a significant transformation through a restructuring process, evolving into a holding company and a conglomerate with diversified interests. 

The Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Ayodele Odulaja, shared insights into the company’s evolution since its inception in 1986 as Fatgbems Nigeria Limited, addressing the surging demand for tires driven by the global automobile industry.

By 2009, Fatgbems achieved a milestone as the top distributor of Michelin & Dunlop tires in Nigeria, garnering recognition at the UBA Annual General Meeting for outstanding commitment and service.

Venturing into the petroleum industry in 1994 with the establishment of Fatgbems Petroleum Company Limited, the company now stands as a key player in Nigeria’s petroleum sector, delivering high-quality products and services.

Odulaja emphasized the journey from a tire distributor to a diversified conglomerate as a testament to resilience, commitment to excellence, and unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction.

 The latest transformation involves diversification into Fatgbems Nigeria Limited, Fatgbems Properties, and Agro-Allied Company Limited.

In the agricultural sector, the company is focusing on cashew production and processing, aiming to cater to the domestic market and facilitate exports within Africa. 

Fatgbems Agro-Allied is dedicated to sustainable agricultural development, starting with cashew production and processing, with plans to process around 100,000 metric tons of cashew nuts annually.

To strengthen local production, Fatgbems has acquired approximately 250 acres of prime agricultural land in Ogun State, Nigeria. 

Odulaja highlighted Nigeria’s position as the second-largest producer of raw cashew nuts in Africa and outlined the company’s role in enhancing production and boosting Nigeria’s global standing in the cashew industry.

The conglomerate’s foray into real estate comes through Fatgbems Properties, committed to creating exceptional living and working spaces. Odulaja announced the company’s entry into the property and value industry, using modern technology to bridge gaps and develop properties meeting the highest standards of quality and comfort.
