Dana Group of Companies
From its maiden advent in Pharmaceuticals Manufacturing in the mid-80's, the Group diversified into bulk importation of Industrial Chemicals, affordable Pharmaceuticals and Surgicals, Commodities, Polyethylenes, Automobiles, Electronics and White Goods. In continuing with the Group's philosophy of leading by example, the successful commissioning of a Plastics Plant for household products in the year 2000 was followed by the setting up of a Pharmaceutical Formulation Plant and a Table Water Bottling Plant in 2003. The Group also forrayed into the manufacturing of food products with an Instant Milk Plant under the banner of Danaco Milk and an Instant Noodle Plant under the banner of Dana Sun Yum Noodles in 2007, and a Rice Milling Plant too, using state-of-the-art food processing equipment from the world leaders in their fields. Dana Group also acquired Steel Rolling Mill in Katsina to produce debars and wire rods, which was a high point in 2006.
With its resources, reach and marketing acumen, the Group will lead the field in Industrial Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals for a very long time to come. The turn of the century has fulfilled its vision of becoming a large conglomerate with interests in diverse fields of operations, including that in manufacturing and importation of new varieties of Pharmaceutical products. The Group's diversification into the Food Sector and Automobile Sector, lends further credence to its capability and multi-faceted operations. Sound financials and exemplary business vision have made the group a leader in every area of operation. Its latest and most exciting venture has been its entry in the Air industry with the launch of Dana Air at the end of 2008, serving domestic routes with daily scheduled flights and charter operations.
The contribution of Dana Group to the National Economy has been immense and beyond doubt. Apart from making many people gainfully employed either directly or indirectly, it has dutifully established itself as a socially responsible organization. Among others, Dana Group is sponsoring Sri Sai Vandana Foundation (SSVF), a registered charity since 1995 in Nigeria. SSVF conducts frequent and regular humanitarian service activities and participates in programmes committed to alleviating the under-privileged in Nigeria.
