French tannery Colombier seeks a new owner. Offers accepted until mid-March

Year of foundation: 1925; Turnover (2015): around 3 million euro; Employees: 27. Specialisation high-end for goatskin for footwear, small leather goods and, in particular, gloves. French nationality. It comes from Saint-Junien, the department of Haute-Vienne, Charente and Périgord, the news that the historic tannery Colombier (a typical family company whose foundation stone laid by Leon Colombier) is up for sale. The reasons for the decision is unclear. However, this could go back to the difficulty to allure a new generation. Colombier, exactly a year ago suffered a small fire (with no consequence to people or things). The local portal wrote that the dossier with the purchase offers is to be delivered by March, 15. The selling practice is managed by the agency Nouvelle Aquitaine, specialising in development and innovation.
