Founded by Gilbert and Ronald Chagoury, the Chagoury Group’s headquarters are based in West Africa. Its portfolio of activities include construction and property development, flour Mills, water bottling and purification, glass manufacturing, insurance, hotels, furniture manufacturing, telecommunications, IT, catering and international financing.
The Group’s expansion plans include developing industrial links between Africa and China as well as Latin America.The Group employs tens of thousands of people, considered by Gilbert Chagoury to be “the best workforce in Africa”. The Chagoury Group is both a responsible and innovative employer, providing not only a European standard safe working environment for all its employees but also unrivalled access to private healthcare, pensions and family benefits.
Starting with the production of flour and maize in the early 1970’s, the Chagoury Group branched out primarily to meet its own needs. The need to service the company brought into existence an entire construction division that has grown into one of West Africa’s leading developers.
Civil engineering naturally followed suit in the 1980’s to provide an infrastructural base and the Chagoury group began expanding into transportation and technology to provide an all round self sufficiency for both its own businesses and the industrial requirements of West African states, particularly Nigeria.
