NEW LEATHER PROCESSING FACTORY

Eagle Ottawa is an American company that processes leather for the motor industry, mostly for export. The leather arrives as raw hides and the final product leaves as blemish-free leather correctly sized for the manufacture of car seat kits by upstream suppliers.

SERVICES AND OUTCOME

The factory was unique in that it was fully air-conditioned which is necessary for leather processing.

Work commenced on site on 1 February 2003 and beneficial occupation for the first section was achieved on 1 June 2003. The entire factory was complete, including all mechanical works, by 31 August 2003. It was quite satisfying to have amazed the Americans, who had constructed a similar facility in the USA in double the time, so the team did South Africa proud!
