Application Lab in heart of the Japanese leather industry

At Stahl, we strongly believe in working closely together with clients to provide custom made solutions. Therefore we opened a renewed Application Lab for leather in the heart of the Japanese leather industry: Tatsuno. The new lab is equipped with state-of-the-art machineries and offers physical and application testing from Wet-End to Finish. With this renewed lab, we are able to meet the needs of a wide range of industries, from the automotive, home furnishing and leisure & lifestyle industry to apparel & accessories.

“The decision to renew our Application Lab is fully in line with our position as industry leader in process chemicals for leather products,” says Sakamoto Yorinobu, Chief Representative of Stahl Japan limited. The lab offers clients a one-stop location, where customers and technicians together can run application trials from beamhouse tanning to finishing leather. Stahl’s innovative processing solutions are available for dealing with all types of raw material in a more sustainable way.

State of the art testing
The new lab is equipped with state-of-the-art machineries to cater to customers’ needs. The lab will be used for developing new technology, trouble shooting, color matching services and provide workshops. Furthermore, customers can use the equipment themselves to run pilot tests and new projects. This benefits small and medium-sized tanners who do not have these facilities. “We are located in the heart of the Japanese leather tanning industry and therefore close to our customers. Altogether, this makes us the ideal partner for customers to support them in growing their business”, Sakamoto continues.

Currently, Stahl has nearly 40 Application Labs worldwide and will be opening several new labs in the coming years.
