In 1994, Hassan Hammoud started to reconstruct the business by contract tanning with local tanneries in Nigeria. Business turnover waved to the favor of the young leader and within the span of a generation, Mahaza Company limited was constructed in Nigeria. 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 Nigeria and other countries.
