“While adopting best sustainable practices from the existing tanneries, the floor layout of the new tannery is set up by following Lean principles, based on a study led by Porsche Consulting and ISA. Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) will be implemented from the beginning stage to collect smart data which lays the foundation for ISA Industry 4.0 approach”, said Tiago Horn, COO Asia, ISA TanTec.

 “The setup of the new tannery is expected to create1,000 jobs in the long run. The strategic Lean production layout will compensate for projected aggressive labor cost increases in the coming years”. Added Jens Kaufhold, CFO Vietnam & USA, ISA TanTec.
