New Mongolian footwear factory strives to meet domestic demands


A new Mongolian footwear factory, selected for the government’s program funded by the Chinggis Bond to increase exports and decrease imports, opened on Saturday.
Best Shoes was established in 2011, with four employees. The company used to manufacture 60 to 70 pairs of shoes a month. Now, the company is capable of manufacturing 500 to 800 pairs of shoes a day, thanks to the opening of its new factory. The factory, with over 70 employees, is fully equipped with the latest technology and equipment from Italy and Germany.
“By operating a conveyor network system in our new, 1,134 cubic meter building, we are now able to provide 30 percent of the supply for the domestic footwear market,” announced B.Tuvdennyam, the president of Best Shoes.
B.Tuvdennyam started his shoe business by making shoes on the balcony of his home, and worked his way up until he established a large, modern factory. He said his goal is to develop his products into a global brand, and to create amicable and comfortable conditions for his employees so that they can be content and satisfied with jobs in their native country, Mongolia.
During the opening ceremony, Prime Minister N.Altankhuyag emphasized, “Mongolians are now able to manufacture the best quality footwear domestically. It’s vital to support one another now. The law enforcement and defense sectors should begin purchasing work shoes and boots from here, instead of from foreign countries. ”
Apart from shoes, Best Shoes manufactures bags and small leather goods with licenses from Italy, Germany and India, made of calfskin processed in China.
