Juhel Nigeria Limited is an indigenous pharmaceutical manufacturing company, founded in 1987 as the first pharmaceutical manufacturing company in old Anambra state, Nigeria. We manufacture a wide range of pharmaceutical products, from oral to intravenous medicines. With a total of over 100 Pharmaceutical products, we manufacture one of the largest range of pharmaceutical products in the country, all of which are NAFDAC and ISO certified, meeting high standards at affordable prices.
In October 1989, Juhel Nigeria Limited was commissioned 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. In 1995, the company forayed into its first non-pharmaceutical operation by building its first Petroleum Filling Station in Port-Hacourt. This small initiative 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. Commissioned 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.
The pharmaceutical manufacturing division of the company operates in two locations. The Oral Medicine Manufacturing Plant in Emene, Enugu State and the Parenteral Medicine Manufacturing Plant in Awka, Anambra State. The Enugu location contains our Tablet and Syrup Manufacturing Plants, our separate Antibiotic Capsule Manufacturing Plant, Our Bottled Water and Beverage Manufacturing Plants and our dedicated Plastic Bottle Manufacturing Plant. Our Anambra State location contains our large state-of-the-art Parenteral Drug Manufacturing Factory in which we manufacture our Intravenous Medicines, Sterile Water For Injections, Ear Drops and Eye Drops.
With these under our belt, we are not only one of the largest Pharmaceutical Drug manufacturing companies in Nigeria, we also remain the largest manufacturer of high-quality blow-fill-seal aseptically manufactured intravenous medicines in West Africa. Our presence in Nigeria and other countries throughout West-Africa has been maintained as a result of our product quality and reliability in ensuring these reach the customer as they want, at prices they can afford. At Juhel Nigeria Limited, your satisfaction is our business.
