Abstract: Abstract Increasing global competition has made many business leaders and policy makers turn their attention to such critical issues as productivity and quality. Productivity improvement should be a concern of every industry regardless of the type of production, economic or political system. The definition of productivity, the ratio of output value to input value, remains the same for every sector. Productivity can either be improved through increasing the output value by increasing the quality or quantity of products, or through decreasing the input value by utilizing the resources effectively & efficiently. Efficient maintenance management is one way of improving the productivity through capital resources of the company. The paper examines how proper maintenance management improves the productivity of leather industries. Leather industry, as it is one of the potential economic sectors, it should be given proper attention for sustainable development of the country. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to propose improvement areas in maintenance activities of Ethiopian leather industries to improve their productivity by analyzing the problems associated with it.
