Wet blue leather from Mexico

Tecnocuero is based right in the heart of Mexico’s leather making and shoe manufacturing centre of Leon, in the state of Guanajuato. Here is the most important cluster for the manufacture of automotive leather in the Americas, as well as the most technically advanced wet blue plant.

This plant is producing 3,000 wet blue pieces a day and has a maximum capacity of 145,000 pieces per month, working three shifts.

With such available production capacity, this plant supplies major automotive leather makers, such as Bader and Toyota throughout the continent.

Manager Miguel Angel Dominguez noted that automotive leather is buoyant, but the shoe industry has yet to “wake up”.

Mr Dominguez was very enthusiastic about APLF Leather this year as he considered the visitor flow and quality of buyers much better than the last event held in Hong Kong, five years ago.

About APLF

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.


We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
