> Control & Conservation

Through the installation of modern equipment and process automation we have been able to greatly enhance
environmental efficiency. For example, dyeing is electronically controlled by computerised dispensing systems,
and this brings greater accuracy, reduces waste and eliminates the need for employees to handle chemicals.
Similarly, our spray and roller coating technology is designed to apply the precise amount of surface
coating to each hide.

Energy conservation is aided by the use of efficiency management systems, such as those controlling temperature
and humidity during drying. Moreover, by being selective about our power sources - we mainly use hydro generated
electricity and natural gas - we can make a further contribution to our environmental balance.
