The tanning profession has existed for centuries. It is a very old and respected craft, and more in demand than ever.
In close cooperation with the Research Institute of Leather and Plastic Sheeting (FILK) in Freiburg, we have been training tanner journeymen for decades. They are often then offered permanent employment with us upon completion of training. Upon successful completion, tanners can undertake a two-year apprenticeship as a leather technician. This specialist qualification expands the range of career possibilities.
The diversity of leather poses challenges for the expertise of tanners and leather technicians again and again. The range of products encompasses, among other things, airplane and automobile seats, shoes, clothing, bags, etc. That makes these careers versatile and exciting.
