Meeting all customer needs at our new Center of Excellence for leather chemicals in Mexico

To provide tailor-made solutions to our South American customers, we opened a brand new Center of Excellence for leather chemicals in Mexico in October 2015. Whether our customers work for the automotive, home furnishing and fashion industry or tannery, we provide the solutions they seek for the entire production process from raw hides to finish and aftercare.

Durable and luxurious car interiors, home interiors and fashion items
The decision to open this Center of Excellence is fully in line with both our position as industry leader in the leather segment and our growth strategy. The new center enables us to serve the growing automotive leather industry and our current shoe leather customers even better. By literally working close to our customers, we can provide tailor-made solutions to help them grow their business. At the center, we will show our partners and OEMs how they can benefit from the extensive portfolio of leather chemicals to give car interiors, home interior and fashion items a durable and luxurious appearance.

State-of-the-art testing
The center is equipped with state-of-the-art machinery. We can, for instance, reproduce all the automotive and shoe leather production conditions inside a controlled environment. It also includes one of the most complete testing labs in the continent. Due to our thorough in-house testing, we are able to develop the new products our customers are looking for. Think of technologies minimizing the weight of leather car seats whilst maintaining full thickness, look and feel. Or Stahl EasyWhite Tan™, our more sustainable tanning system creating high-quality leather without compromising on usability and look.
