For the first time ever in Nigeria, Introducing Tiger TMT 550D Steel Rebars
African Industries Group

TIGER TMT, The Most Trusted Steel Rebars In Nigeria For Decades

Tiger TMT Steel Rebars are a premium product offering by the African industries Group (AIG) for the construction industry. The group is a leading manufacturer of steel rebars in Nigeria for decades, predominantly using ferrous scrap as the raw material. In 2023, it became the first indigenous manufacturer to start producing steel rebars using iron ore sourced from its very own Nigerian mines. This is in line with its aim of utilizing the abundant natural resources and making Nigeria self-reliant for steel products, thereby eliminating its dependence on imports.

The Group is now in the process of introducing Tiger TMT 550D steel rebars, which is aimed at further supporting the infrastructure development of Nigeria and West Africa. These Rebars are ideal for high-rise buildings, airports, flyovers, dams, bridges, and other structures that need to withstand a lot of weight. Tiger TMT 550D Steel bars have better yield strength, tensile strength to elongation, and are also quite economical.
