H.F. Schröder started its operations in Hamburg, Germany over 80 years ago in 1933. Few years later it expanded its operation to Burma and India. The company‘s overseas operation had to be shut down few short years later as a result of the world war 2. In 1954, H.F. Schröder started a full scale branch in Nigeria where it built a strong presence both in contracting and consulting, as well as, in technical services to the public and private sector. The company‘s success in Nigeria made it sought after by large multi – national organizations to be their exclusive representatives. Among them are EXPRESS LIFTS, SABIEM LIFTS and DEMAG CRANES to name a few. Success breeds success so is the saying. The representations given to H.F Schröder in Nigeria were so successful that world – wide offers were coming and the company became in a position to be very selective.
