PrimeAsia China (PAC) wins Global Tannery of the Year at the Hong Kong APLF conference. Nearly 50 global tanneries were nominated for this prestigious prize, run by World Leather Magazine. The competition showcases the leather industry’s top tanneries, those implementing best practices and engaging their workers, customers, communities and the environment.

The competition’s nine tannery finalists were evaluated on their commitments to: technical innovation, environmental best practice, employee welfare, community involvement, relationships with clients, and economic sustainability. PAC highlighted their commitment to technical innovation by showcasing numerous new research and development projects, machinery investments, and supply chain collaboration. Substantial energy and water reductions in the past, and ambitious long-term sustainability goals for further water, energy and waste reductions emphasize PAC’s focus on the environment. PAC has also received top awards from 3rd party and brand environmental audits including: the highest Nike Materials Sustainability Index supplier score, Forest Footprint Sector Leader, and Leather Working Group Gold. Employees at PAC are provided a good working environment with the benefits of boarding, meals, health physicals, trainings, and educational financial support. To engage in their community, PAC employees volunteered 716 hours at schools, elderly homes, and environmental cleanups during 2012. PAC prides itself on cultivating strong relationships with their brands to support them in the development of materials, customer service, and environmental programs. PrimeAsia China strives to be world class in the quality of leather produced, innovative in introducing best practices, sustainable in the usage of resources, and engaged with their customers, employees, community, and suppliers.

The Global Tannery of the Year competition is an 18-month process starting at nomination and concluding at the final awards gala. Nearly 50 tanneries were nominated to participate in the competition; these nominations were narrowed down to nine finalist tanneries, two from each of five global areas (with only 1 in Africa). The nine finalist tanneries hosted the World Leather Team at their tannery for a two-day in-depth study into the operations and practices of the tannery. During the 2013 Hong Kong APLF, the nine finalist tanneries presented the highlights and commitments of their tannery to four independent judges. The judges looked for examples of innovative thinking and passion for the leather industry, for people and for leather itself. PrimeAsia China initially won the regional award for the top China tannery and went on to win the overall global award later that evening. These PAC awards follow the recognition that PrimeAsia Vietnam (PAV) received as the 2009 Tannery of the Year for the Asia Region.

PrimeAsia is grateful to its customers and suppliers who continue to support PrimeAsia’s values.
