Founded in 1929, traditionally known as wooden manufacturer of pipes and tanks, MICHELON Máquinas e Equipamentos became the biggest manufacturer of drums and paddles for the Brazilian tanning industry.
Nowadays the company commercializes its products all over Brazil, Latin America and some European countries. For being a company who searches a continued improvement, acts in the market with distinguished and qualified products and services, supplying more demanding markets each time, giving specialized technical assistance to guarantee the satisfaction of its customers.
Brazil is one of the main leather producers in the world and Michelon Máquinas has participated in this development and construction over time, through the manufacture of high-quality tannery drums and skilled technical assistance.
Through an extraordinary combination of factors, Brazil has become one of the largest cattle producers in the world, it is also one of the largest shoe producers on the planet. Thus, there is an availability of bovine hides, around 40 million per year, and an advanced capacity and technology in the footwear sector, at the peak of consumption.
These two sectors are interconnected by another sector that stands out worldwide: the Brazilian tanning industry, which supplies the domestic and foreign markets with quality, serving the most demanding markets in the world. Tannery Drums or Tanning Drums have a great deal of collaboration in this supply capacity.
Along with the leather industry, Brazil developed its industry of machinery for the manufacture of leather, which today is a reference in providing technological solutions for this sector. In this scenario, Michelon has an important highlight, as it is a leader in the manufacture of tanning drums, one of the main pieces of equipment that make up the tanning production process. Soils are responsible for the Liming, Tanning and Retanning processes. Knowing the importance of this equipment, we use quality raw materials in our wooden drums and we were pioneers in Brazil in the manufacture of polypropylene drums, a renowned solution that allows us to use the same equipment for different processes.
