Bata, a renowned brand in the footwear and apparel industry based in Batanagar, Kolkata, faced an issue with mould and fungus growth on their stored leather sheets. Seeking a solution, they reached out to Bry-Air, who recommended installing a compact dehumidifier to effectively eliminate the problem. The installation of the dehumidifier proved highly beneficial for Bata, successfully resolving the issue.
Bata India, a part of Bata Shoe Organization, is India’s largest footwear retailer and a prominent manufacturer. Originally established in 1931 as Bata Shoe Company Private Limited, the company commenced its operations as a small venture in Konnagar, close to Calcutta, the following year. The first construction project for Bata’s operations, which is now recognized as the Bata township, was initiated in January 1934. Over time, the site’s area was doubled, and it became popular as Batanagar. Notably, this manufacturing facility became the first in the Indian shoe industry to achieve the ISO: 9001 certification.
The leather stock of Bata India is located near a pond. Due to the damp climate in the area, mould and fungus started developing on the leather sheets.
Taking into account the unique circumstances of the leather stock’s proximity to a pond and the extremely humid climate, we recommended Bata to install our Compact Dehumidifier Model FFB-600 in their leather sheet storage room that could effectively cover a room dimension of 400 sq. ft., maintaining 35% RH.
The installation of Bry-Air Dehumidifier in the leather sheet storage room ensures optimal humidity levels are maintained, safeguarding the leather from excessive moisture that could lead to damage.
With Bry-Air’s expertise in air engineering, the compact dehumidifier will provide reliable protection for the leather stock in such challenging environmental conditions.
