The history of the tannery began in 1960 with Tannery Rota and Mr. Jeronymo Kempe working as employee. In 1967, Mr. Jeronymo Kempe entered the Tannery Rota membership framework. A few years later in 1985, Mr. Jeronymo Kempe bought this Tannery, which happened to be called Tannery J. Kempe. It continued the production of cowhide and articles for saddlery.
In 2000, the businessman Gervasio Costa, Mr. Jeronymo’s son in law, bought Tannery J. Kempe. Gervasio Costa always liked challenges, and even though the Tannery was small at this time, he saw it as a major challenge. Fortunately with many years of experience as an entrepreneur, he saw quite a few ways to improve the Tannery J. Kempe. He initiated a plan of action for the company. This included improving the production and machinery, increasing the production lines and the demand in the domestic market, and lastly entering the international market with a quality product.
Currently Tannery J. Kempe specializes in the manufacture of tanned hides to 100% vegetable. In our processes we use a mixture of natural tannins, which guarantee the products feature noble, elegant, distinguished and excellent acceptance in the Brazilian market and most of the demanding world markets.
Our main products are intended for the manufacture of shoe soles, insoles, welts and fachetes for footwear, outsole for ballet shoes, manufacturing belts and belts, rustic furniture, saddles, harnesses, ties and goals; gloves, bags, briefcases, suitcases and small artifacts. In our production processes there are still some by-products generated. They are used as raw materials to fuel industries and manufacturers of animal protein, gelatin, pets, glue and industrial tallow.
