Stahl's new centre features a comprehensive testing laboratory

Chemicals company Stahl has opened a new Center of Excellence in Leon, Mexico, specialising in the leather sector, as part of ongoing efforts to strengthen its position in this market.

The centre will focus on leather chemicals for industries including footwear and fashion, as well as tanneries, with solutions ranging across the entire production process from raw to finished leather and aftercare. One of its goals is to provide tailored solutions for customers.

“Our new centre of excellence enables us to even better serve both the growing automotive leather industry and our existing customers in the leather footwear sector,” says Huub van Beijeren, CEO of Stahl.

The centre is equipped with machinery to replicate leather production conditions in a controlled environment. It also includes what is described as “one of the most comprehensive testing laboratories on the continent.”

New products include EasyWhite Tan, a sustainable tanning system that creates high-quality leather without compromising its use or its appearance.”

Stahl also operates centres of excellence in China, the US and the Netherlands.
