Er­bil Mod­ern Slaugh­ter­house uses an ad­vanced ma­chine to re­move the skin of the slaugh­tered an­i­mals with­out dam­ag­ing the skin, some­thing that is promis­ing for Yil­maz.

Cur­rently the an­i­mal skins are ex­ported to neigh­bor­ing coun­tries due to the fact that there is no leather in­dus­try in the re­gion.

Yil­maz vows to sup­ply the de­mand of the whole re­gion in shoes and leather prod­ucts and is fur­ther plan­ning to ex­port to other mar­kets in the coun­try.
