In 1998, Mamuda Industries Nigeria 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 in Nigeria, with superior quality and elegance.
