Established in 1992, Desta PLC is a manufacturing company that oversees the production of plastic products, including shoes and their soles. Using top of the line injection molding machines, our company has a manufacturing capacity of more than 3000 pairs of shoes per day, and uses more than 200 tons of PVC (a plastic raw material) per month.
In 1996, due to the significant increase in the demand for all of our products, we expanded our factory to almost double our manufacturing capability. We also acquired a number of machines to make shoelace and textile accessories, making our company the largest supplier of shoelaces in the Ethiopian market.
In 2000, Desta completed a new manufacturing facility to produce first-aid adhesive bandages, the first of its kind in Ethiopia. Our KARE brand continues to gain popularity in the market.
