Established in 1996, Steel Centre trades a comprehensive range of steel products. The company's excellent reputation has seen it expand to three locations to serve clients from across Tanzania.
The Lodhia Group began trading in 1996 as the Steel Centre. In truth, however, the Group’s
origins can be traced back far earlier.
Born and raised in Tanzania, Lodhia group Founder and Chairman Mr Arun Lodhia was refining his entrepreneurial proclivities from primary school –
“I started my first businesses in the playground”, he recalls fondly “selling home-made radios as an alternative to extortionately priced foreign imports”.
Since the opening of the group’s first steel rolling mill in 2003, Lodhia Group has provided hundreds of jobs with levels of security and benefits unprecedented in the region. Support for the education of employees’ children and regular medical assistance has been provided as a matter of course. A wide range of CSR initiatives are also undertaken, many of which go unreported. In short the growth of the Lodhia Group has directly correlated with an increase in the quality of life in the surrounding community.
