HOW IT ALL STARTED
2016 - 2017
In 2016 during my Industrial Training(IT) attachment at Tons Development ltd, I was able to compile a database of all the major building materials in Nigeria. The document comprises of the prices, description and pictures of the various materials. You can download it here.
Due to the massive response that I get about the database from students, lecturers and construction professionals, I decided to produce the 2017 version which was even more detailed. The feedback that I got on the updated version was mind-blowing. It has been downloaded by over 43,000 people as of June 2020. Click here to download a copy.
In 2018, after making some analysis of our database, we decided to create a business listing platform where Nigerians could locate trusted professionals and vendors online. We listed over 500 merchants and we were able to get a couple of them, new customers.
In 2019, we got a lot of request from students and construction industry professionals for 2019 update of our building materials database.
However, the merchants had earlier complained about people calling to ask for prices without making a purchase. So to bridge this gap we decided to create an eCommerce platform where Nigerians can see current prices of building materials and as well make purchases.
And this is our current projection, Filta.NG – Your one-stop platform for quality Home Decor, Furniture, and Building Materials in Nigeria.
