OUR HISTORY

1989

In October 1989, Juhel Nigeria Limited was commisioned as the first Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Company in old Anambra state, Nigeria by the then ruling Governor Col. Robert Akonobi. Beginning with a small range of products, we started continually expanding our operations, reaching an peak employment capacity of over 500 staff members at the time.

1995

In 1995, the company forayed into its first non-pharmaceutical operation by building its first Petroleum Filling Station in Port-Hacourt. This small inititive spurred the creation of an entire subdivision, leading the way for an array of Filling Stations throughout South-Eastern Nigeria and creating Juhel Petroleum along the way.

In the year 2001, facing rapid expansion, the company then moved to its current Headquarters, a much larger location Emene, Enugu State. With this expansion also came the possibility of additional growth. The product range expanded quickly, adding antibiotic capsules and syrups to our growing product cache. The staff count consequentially expanded to 1,800 in order to keep up with the growing product range and increased operational requirements. Our water and beverage manufacturing plant was also built on further expansion of the site.

2010

Comissioned by then President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on the 15th of October 2010, our Parenteral Drug Manufacturing Plant was established as the largest Parenteral Drug Manufacturing plant in West Africa. It was built as a required response to the unnecessary importation of parenteral drugs in Nigeria, creating a local source of highest quality intravenous medicines, ear and eye drops.
