Welcome to PIN
The concept of the name Polymer Institute of Nigeria was first conceived in July 1988 at the Lagos State University Guest House, Badagry.
The idea later translated into the 1st National Workshop on Plastic and Rubber: Processing, Quality control and investment held in the same month.
At the end of the workshop, a committee was set up which comprised Dr. T. A. Ibidapo (Secretary Pro-Tempore), Dr. A. O. Fashina (late) of RRIN Benin City, Chief Kunle Ogunade of Petro-Organic, Ms. May Ikokwu of the then NNPC.
The committee held meetings in Lagos and Benin City where the issue of PIN registration and its inauguration were concluded.
In August 1991, the dreams of the founding fathers came to pass with the formal registration and inauguration of the institute. [read more]
