In 1994, Hassan Hammoud started to reconstruct the business by contract tanning with local tanneries. Business turnover waved to the favor of the young leader and within the span of a generation, Mahaza Company limited was constructed. Driven by self-motivation and the enthusiasm of his young age, Hassan Hammoud worked hard, dreaming that one day this tannery would become an icon in the tanning and the leather industries.
In 1998, Mamuda Industries Nig. Ltd. established itself in the plot next to Mahaza Company Ltd. Two companies started producing wet blue into crust. When the government banned the export of wet blue, Mahaza merged with Mamuda and diverted without difficulties into crust and finished leather processing. From the first skin that rolled off the finishing line, Mamuda diversified to produce a wide range of the finest finished leather, with superior quality and elegance.
Holding on to quality convention, the group was capitalizing on its unique strength in leather art, techniques, and fashion to weave its eminence more deeply into the trend and inclination of the industry not just in Nigeria but all over the world. Mamuda group’s experience in the marketplace, innovativeness, and technical expertise, while largely homegrown, also reflect its long-term partnership with world’s class clients from Europe, Latin America, and China. Indeed, this further enhanced its competitive position in Nigeria, where it’s already well placed.
