TFCI is a concern of Taurus Group. The Group has been in business since the 1993's and has established in others sectors gradually. Why we've decided to launch the shoe & craft manufacturing , the first question that was asked by the promoters was "why?". The answer was simple.
The cost of Labor is cheaper than 21 Asian cities (According to ZETRO & WTO).
The labor is fairly skilled and the people have an interest to learn.
The leather of Bangladesh is excellent (grain wise) in quality.
The leather and shoe industry has been declared a thrust sector by the Government of Bangladesh consequently providing all support.
Bangladesh is eligible for GSP by most of the European country giving it a price advantage over other exporting countries.
Our products are manufactured by using the state-of-the-art machineries from Italy and Germany with a current rated capacity of 1000 pairs of Men's/ Ladies shoe/ sandal and substantial quantity of crafts per day and expandable for the future if necessary. TFCI is situated just near by the tannery area and well connected with the air and seaport. The factory has its own extensive power backup system, capable of running the factory independently.
In addition to the above, we have an in-house design making and developing facilities. We do have our corporate tannery support that gives us an extra advantage for sourcing genuine quality leather competitively, hence we can supervise the leather tanning process even from crust up to the final products.
Hopefully we have answered the "why Taurus Footwear & craft Industries"? Now we ask you "why not TFCI"?
