There’s unpalatable news oozing out of Nnewi at this moment saying Igbo revered industrialist Engr Obiajulu Gilbert Uzodike, OON founder of SON certified Nigerian cables maker cutixPLC has passed on.

Uzodike in 1981, founded a cable manufacturing company in his native community of Nnewi in Anambra state and worked it into becoming a super standard electrical and automotive cables in Nigeria and the first manufacturing concern in South Eastern Nigeria to be quoted in the Nigerian stock exchange.

Cutixplc is well distributed with offices across the geopolitical zones in Nigeria.

These are no doubt heavy duty achievements in an era of the proliferation of sub standards.

Uzodike was son of Engr GM Uzodike and born March 25, 1949 in Onitsha, Anambra State.

He hailed from Ndi-Ogbe, Otolo, Nnewi.
In 1974, he entered University of Lagos graduating with a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering.

He thereafter in 1977 collected an MBA from the Harvard Business School, USA,

Deep patriotism and love for community and country must have caused his decision to found Cutix Plc in Otolo Nnewi and not n Lagos or to remain in the US after his studies.

Uzodike is also credited to have founded defunct Adtec Limited and Adswitch Plc.

Survival of Cutixplc in the volatile Nigerian economy and business atmosphere speaks volumes of the character of founder.

According to Cutixplc website, Uzodike “pioneered the affairs of Cutix Plc (as the CEO and the board chairman in different periods) till in 2011 when he retired from active service of the Company, and took up the role of elder statesman for the Company.”
