Daltrade Bares Mind On Paving Stones Industry In Nigeria

DALTRADE Nigeria Limited has explained reasons
paving stones collapsed within six months of the
project completion. Daltrade is a Nigeria-Polish company established in
the country in 1962; the paving stones
manufacturing aspect of the company came into
existence in 1992. In an interview withVanguard , the company’s CEO, Mr. Oguntoye Adelaja, blamed collapses of
work done by some companies on not keeping to
standards required for the production of the
product by some players in the industry. According to Standards Organisation of Nigeria,
the Nigeria Industrial Standard (NIS) for pre-cast
concrete paving stones is NIS 450: 2003. “When
you look at those ones on the road sides, there
are times after the jobs are done, within six
months, they begin to remove; this is because most of them are not properly vibrated. In fact,
most of pave stones you see out there are
sandcrete, not concrete but if you don’t know,
unsuspecting buyers believe paving stone is
paving stone but there are great, great difference
in terms of absorption of moisture and all that. “You see a lot of paving stones even in companies,
road sides but our own is quite different and the
quality is very clear in terms of the compressive
strength and abrasion; we carry out a lot of tests
on our product to ensure that we comply with the
minimum required strength to ensure that whoever that is buying paving stones from our
dealers is buying products that stands the test of
time. Daltrade is leader in terms of paving stones
manufacturing. We strive to keep that, and don’t
want to deviate from that,” he said. On export of the company’s product, he said:
“Not really, the paving stone aspect is what we do
locally for the Nigerian markets. We are not
thinking of exporting for now.”
