PrimeAsia Leather, a renowned manufacturer of high-quality leather, announces its upcoming expansion project in Vietnam. The expansion, set to be completed in 2024, will increase the tannery’s monthly production capacity to 8 million square feet per month.
As part of the expansion project, PrimeAsia Vietnam will be adding new retanning / coloring capacity, which will be supported by the addition of a third retanning / coloring mezzanine that will include eight new fully automated production drums. The current sample retanning / coloring area and its highly qualified team will be relocated to a newly constructed and purpose-built dedicated building. Several other major equipment upgrades include the addition of a fourth pigment finishing line to support the growing demand for athletic leathers, new drying and conditioning equipment with advanced technology, added equipment in the areas of splitting, shaving and buffing, and a further significant expansion and upgrade to the WWTP and associated solid waste handling technologies.
Sustainability investments remain a top priority for PrimeAsia, and a second recently installed State-of-the-art Cartigliano sludge dryer, as well as upgrades to the wastewater treatment plant, will enable PrimeAsia Vietnam to support this added capacity.
PrimeAsia Vietnam has always been committed to providing exceptional quality leathers and customer service. This further expansion will enable PrimeAsia to continue to deliver on those commitments, alongside meeting the growing demands of its customers.
“We are excited about this expansion project and the potential it holds for our company,” said Jonathan Clark, CEO of PrimeAsia. “Our team has worked tirelessly to make this expansion a reality, and we look forward to continuing to provide our customers with exceptional leathers that are sustainably produced. PrimeAsia recognizes the challenges and geographical risks that are part of today’s global supply chains and we are working to mitigate risk and bring Security of Supply to all of our customers.”
The Vietnam expansion project is part of PrimeAsia’s ongoing commitment to innovation, sustainability, SPEED, quality, and meeting the evolving needs of its customers. The company looks forward to the completion of this extensive project which will strengthen its position as a global leader in the tanning business.
