Scroll down to read more

Knowledge and cooperation are the drivers to creating a supply chain that is more sustainable and transparent. Through Stahl Campus®, we are committed to filling the talent gap observed in some of the markets that we serve by actively seeking ways to educate and train university students, NGOs, brands, suppliers, distributors, customers and other stakeholders in the supply chain. 

Stahl Campus®, our specialist training and knowledge center for leather and performance coatings, enables people in the industry to enhance their expertise. Stahl has the knowledge, facilities and equipment to create first-class educational surroundings. So that’s exactly what we do, under the motto: Let’s learn to create a better future together. Because together, we can innovate to reduce the environmental impact throughout the supply chain.

Learning programs at Stahl Campus® and on-location

We opened Stahl Campus® in 2014 in Waalwijk (the Netherlands), and it quickly gained a reputation as an inspiring source of knowledge. Since then, we opened a Stahl Campus® in León (Mexico) and Guangzhou (China) and will open one in Kanpur (India) in Q3 2019. Today we train technicians from brands, OEMs and other manufacturers as well as students looking to enter the industry. Programs are mostly hosted at Stahl Centers of Excellences around the world, but we can also offer them on-site if preferred. Hundreds of people have successfully completed our training programs.


Training in leather and performance coatings

Our first programs focused on the promotion of good practices in the leather supply chain. But soon we expanded the curriculum to cover performance coatings as well. Both our leather-related learning programs and our learning programs for performance coatings are aligned as appropriate with the needs of students and professionals in the Automotive, Apparel & Home Furnishing, Architectural & Interior Design, Industrial Application and Leisure & Lifestyle market segments.


Promoting best practice and collective learning

The ultimate goal of Stahl Campus® continues to be to promote good practices and transparency throughout the supply chain. Increasingly, Stahl Campus® not only offers structured, modular training courses to people in our industry, it also provides a forum for collective learning and wider debate about the future direction of our industry. In this way, it plays a key role in our wider commitment to transparency and sustainability.Learn how leather is made
