Stahl Neo: freedom to create

During the 2016 edition of the All China Leather Exhibition (ACLE) in Shanghai, we officially launched our Stahl Neo complete leather finish product portfolio that offers solutions that are more sustainable. An important step towards a more transparent future.

“We continuously innovate to help create a better future. The launch of Stahl Neo was a logical next step for us to contribute to a more transparent and sustainable supply chain. This product portfolio is interesting for tanneries that value health, the environment and the future of their business”, explains Huub van Beijeren, Chief Executive Officer at Stahl. The products in the Stahl NEO portfolio comply with the Zero Discharge Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL version 1.1). Yet there is more, as the product line even goes beyond this standard. Stahl Neo products are particularly interesting for tanners in the footwear & leather goods, garment and upholstery industries. Van Beijeren: “Stahl Neo enables our clients to remove the restricted substances listed in the MRSL and to comply with the ZDHC 2020 goals while finishing their leather in the same qualitative way.” 

Stahl Neo on world tour
Stahl Neo expert Remy Vial, Global Technical Manager Leather Finish, traveled the globe to talk to colleagues, students and clients about the Stahl Neo portfolio. He started his world tour with the inaugural inception at ACLE in Shanghai. After China, he traveled to Thailand, Singapore, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Turkey, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, India and Pakistan, and everywhere he explained the potential and possibilities of Stahl Neo. Vial: “We continuously innovate in order to help create a better future for each and every person. Tanners are looking for leather finish solutions that are more sustainable, and with Stahl Neo we supply them with a complete product range that can be easily adapted to existing formulations and applications. Our aim with Stahl Neo is to help people imagine everything for the leather, get the total freedom to create, without being concerned about compliance.”
