Azikel Dredging started the business of sand supply as a fulfillment of the need for sand for upgrading the challenging terrain of the Niger Delta, being an area that is constantly undergoing rapid infrastructural development.

The journey started several years ago, with Azikel being in the business of bulk purchase of sand from local suppliers and resale to contractors. Progress came in the business of sand supply with the need to lease dredgers (needed for the stockpiling of sand for sale to individual suppliers and contractors). In 2008, Azikel Dredging Nigeria limited was incorporated for the services of dredging, reclamation, sand filing, haulage and heavy duty equipment leasing, with the headquarters located at the ultra-modern Operational Base facility at Azikel Close, Obogoro (across Swali Market/Ekoli Bridge), Yenagoa in Bayelsa State. In 2009 Azikel Dredging was assesed internationally and was rated by CMC International as a company of AAB status

Azikel Dredging is owned and managed by professionals in various endeavors who sought to bridge the gap created by environmental and infrastructural developmental needs in the Niger Delta. It is currently one of the  subsidiaries of the Azikel Group
