Enugu Industrial Park top view

Enugu Industrial Park is strategically located at the heart of South-East Nigeria, a few minutes away from the Akanu Ibiam International Airport Enugu. Enugu (/eɪˈnuːɡuː/ ay-NOO-goo; Igbo: Énugwú) is the capital of Enugu State in Nigeria. Enugu Urban city has a population of 722,664 (out of total State population of 3,267,837 according to the 2006 Nigerian census). The name Enugu is derived from the two Igbo words Énú Ụ́gwụ́ meaning “hilltop” denoting the city’s hilly geography, under which coal was found.

The discovery of coal by the colonialists led to the building of the Eastern Line railway to carry coal from the inland city to the Port of Port Harcourt, located 151 miles (243 km) south of Enugu Coal Camp. Enugu was developed as one of the few cities in West Africa created from European contact. Enugu became the capital of the Eastern Region (currently 9 States in Nigeria) after Nigeria’s independence in 1960. A subsequent succession of territorial adjustments in 1967, 1976 and 1991 led to Enugu becoming the capital of what is now Enugu State.
