France's largest tannery Costil closes

25 July 2005

According to various reports, the Costil tannery at Pont Audemer in northern France has closed, along with an additional plant in Strasbourg. The tannery has experienced a number of financial problems in recent years and in recent times has been operating under two new owners with Colomer of Spain taking part of the Pont Audemer complex along with the Strasbourg unit. The remainder was purchased by Tanneries Roux but the continuing poor conditions besetting the European tanning industry have proved too great for continued existence under the current circumstances.
