Opening in tannery business

May I suggest you use your magazine to spread the word that KT Australia, the kangaroo leather tannery at Hughenden, Queensland has closed down, meaning there is nowhere north of Narangba which processes kangaroo skin to leather.

There’s a good business opportunity going as a result, as there is very little competition nationwide in the kangaroo leather tanning game. Mostly this stems from how local governments in and around cities have strict environmental policies, meaning the old inner-city tanneries no longer exist.

As no such problem exists in regional areas, perhaps someone might be interested in giving the idea of a tannery in northern Australia some consideration (there’s certainly no shortage of kangaroos in central Queensland).

With proper management a tannery can employ unskilled workers both male and female and there may even be government help available to an indigenous start-up business, as has been done with other products. Just a thought.
