IULTCS welcomes new Korean members
The International Union of Leather Technologists and Chemists Societies (IULTCS) has announced that two organisations from the Republic of Korea have joined the organisation. The Korea Tanners’ Association has become an associate to represent leather industry companies, and leather producer Whanam Leather Ind Co Ltd has joined as a supporting member.
Greeting these new members, IULTCS president Jean-Pierre Gualino commented: “On behalf of the executive committee, I am pleased to welcome South Korea to IULTCS. Through the memberships of Korea Tanners’ Association and Whanam Leather Ind Co Ltd, the scientific community becomes stronger with their participation, and we look forward to their active involvement in IULTCS activities.”
Founded in London in 1897, the IULTCS currently has 19 member societies and six associate members which between them represent some 3,000 individual members.
