Hormas El Árbol opens Dominican Republic factory

Mexico-based Hormas El Árbol – a manufacturer of wooden shoemakers' lasts – recently opened a new factory in the Dominican Republic. The company was founded in Mexico City in 1935 and some thirty-three years later reportedly became the first Latin American producer to make plastic lasts in high-density polyethylene. In 1981, Hormas El Árbol relocated to León, the largest city in the state of Guanajuato, which is considered to be the capital of Mexican footwear manufacturing. Following the opening ceremony at the new facility, invited guests received a factory tour and a presentation on new developments within the company.
