1.0 Introduction

This project was been design to cover the effects of management on the smooth flow in manufacturing industries, Doyin investment company plc. For any organization to work effectively and in order to increase profit margin of the organization there must be effective management of inventory. Once the organization perceive the desire to buy some materials and equipments either for usage within the offices or for servicing works outside the organization, the role of store management becoming inevitable.

The store sees the control of stock by ensuring that goods or materials are checked, recorded and put in appropriate place in the store. In a service organization, production of goods does not take place but service are rendered. In order to brink about efficient services, appropriate methods, techniques must be practice in the store.

It is the aim of the researcher to look into low section or department is managed in a typical maintaining organization. The management of the store will be determined by its size and types of materials held in the store. These factors will equally determined the use of the centralized store in system or decentralized store system and the recognitions of sub-store in the organization. It  is expected therefore that the affairs of stores department is to be handled by the professional in the field.


Doyin group of company Nigeria limited is the first wholly indigenous soap and detergent manufacturing company in Nigeria. It was incorporated on 8th October, Asa dam road, Ilorin the Kwara state capital.   

Doyin Group of Companies is owned by courageous and experience industrialist Prince (Dr.) Samuel Adedoyin, who had for many years been championing indigenous technology background integration and the use of location materials in the call of the Kwara State Government on indigenous to join hand with the State Government to industrialized the state. Company has on its board, Prince (Dr.) Samuel Adedoyin D. with FWADE piloting at the chairman and Managing Director which is the Executive Director. The Management comprises a list of 27 Managers. Some who are heads of various departments with Engr. T.N Njoko as the General Manager?

The company started operation with one detergent plant with 5 tons/hour capacity in 1985 (presently increased to ten ton/hours) and metamorphosed into a conglomerate of seven plant by 1994 as shown in the table below.


1 Detergent plant 10 tons/hour 2009 Flash Bold (10kg, 5kg, 2kg) Wash Rate (10kg, 5kg, 2kg, 1kg) and Sugar Deal.

2 Scourer Plant 1 ton/day Hi Clean Scourer in Poly and Canisters.

The cardinal belief of the company is that human resources are its most available assets.

The staff strength of forty (40) with one expatriate in 1985 haws steadily increased to about 1000 work force who are entirely Nigeria at present. The company put a high premium on training and re-training all categories of staff at organized courses, workshops, and seminars in plant and on  the job in the field to sharpen individual staff.

This became necessary to retrain the very of the work force to turn around the company; weak points ensure industries growth and survival amidst the healthy rivalry prevailing with allies industries.

The company compares favorably in the provision of effective medical and insurance scheme transportation and incentive package etc. to boost workers morale, we however, do not mortgage enforcement of discipline.

The company’s range of products has continued enjoy good patronage from Nigeria due to their consistently high quality. It is in record that Global Soap and Detergent Industry was he just indigenous company to have recalled the “NIS” Certificate mark for quality with its first 3 years operation. There are 17 sales depots scattered all over the federation to service the nooks and corners of the country.


During the course of carrying out the research work the researcher discovered that the store management of the organization under study was the feed with the following problems.                                   

i. The first problem relates to how the acquire trained personnel in handling the stores activities. There were very few qualified personnel to handle the store operation effectively. The staffs handling the stores operations are those with less educational backgrounds like the primary seven and school certificate holder. So that by virtue of their long service they become executive in the store line.

ii. Secondly, lack of goods storage facilities for the materials held in the store. Certain re-equipment and facilities have to be made available so that materials will be in proper state or condition, but researcher discovered that some of these facilities are lacking in the store of the establishment under study.


The primary objective of writing this project work is to ensure that the researcher satisfy one of the basic criteria for the award of National Diploma in Purchasing and Supply awarded by Purchasing and Supply department Institute of Finance and Management Studies Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin.

This project among other thins will ensure the management of the case study through proper documentation on the stock items understand that basis for food store
