Crittall-Hope Nigeria Limited is Nigeria’s foremost manufacturer of Steel products for the building industry, and has since increased its range to include aluminum products. Crittall-Hope Nigeria Limited is a limited liability company established in 1958 to offer a huge range of steel windows and doors. From its small and humble beginning in 1958, the story of Crittall-Hope dates back to 1884 when one Francis Crittall in Braintree, UK manufactured the first Metal Casement Window.
In 1918, he introduced a range of Metal Windows and Doors. This new range was a huge success both in UK and throughout the world. The range became a standard for many housing schemes and buildings. Having successfully exported its products to as many as 20 different countries including Nigeria, Crittall Windows UK decided to set up manufacturing units in some of these countries. One of such countries was Nigeria, in the form of Crittall-Hope Nigeria Ltd.
The company has resources to execute very large and demanding contracts coupled with the ability to meet individual specifications and requirements.
