Oettinger Davidoff AG, a worldwide manufacturer of premium cigars, has announced the opening of its new factory in Danlí, Honduras. The company purchased the land to build the new cigar factory back in 2015 following land acquisitions in the Condega region of Nicaragua and the Jamastrán Valley in Honduras. This new cigar factory will help the company ramp up the production for its popular Camacho brand, which has demonstrated global growth and demand in the past few years.
“I am proud to officially inaugurate our new factory,” commented Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard, CEO and Board member of Oettinger Davidoff AG. “It is not only a milestone in the history of our company, but also reflects our global crop-to-shop philosophy with this extension of the vertical integration of the business. Our investments mirror the strong growth on Camacho over the past five years which saw its global sales double, as well as the needed production capacity to continue expanding Camacho globally. Furthermore, I am particularly glad that we are able to make a substantial contribution to Honduras’ economic and social development by employing over 500 people in Danlí.”
The new factory will be lead and managed by Manuel Batista, the General Director in Central America, Danlí, Honduras. “Leading and managing this splendid new factory is the greatest honor in my career, thus far,” he said in a press release. “ It makes me very proud to see our team of Master Blenders and cigar artisans strive relentlessly to build up and continue to develop the business of Oettinger Davidoff worldwide. They are the ones who bring to life our finest quality cigars; thrilling aficionados across the globe.”
The new factory is located on 118,403 square feet of land, with an additional 37,673 square feet of land dedicated to warehouses. The building was designed by Honduran architect Gonzalo Núñez Díaz and has several cold rooms, production halls, loading and unloading zones, a spacious guesthouse.
