Since the opening of the Stahl Campus® in 2014, hundreds of students and technicians have successfully completed training programs for Leather. Stahl Campus® is based in the Netherlands, Mexico and China. Per February 2017, these Stahl Campus® locations will offer modules about Performance Coatings too.
As leader in process chemicals for leather products, performance coatings and polymers, Stahl takes its responsibility to evolve these industries by investing heavily in education. Especially in terms of sustainability. “By providing the right knowledge and education to both professionals and future talents, we accelerate the process of making the leather and performance coating supply chain more sustainable”, says Huub van Beijeren, CEO of Stahl.
The flexible modular training system of Stahl Campus® Performance Coatings is based on three training types:
- ‘Industry Trends & Innovations’: industry and supply chain views, trends, insights, challenges and innovations;
- ‘Pyramid Training’: basic knowledge about key pillars of coatings and how to reach expected performance;
- ‘Experimental Training’: a deep dive into segment-specific or overarching solutions including prototyping, best practices and testing by simulating formulating, application and real life performance.
