We are SÜDLEDER.
And proud of it.
We are SÜDLEDER and proud of it. This slogan represents everything that SÜDLEDER stands for. SÜDLEDER is characterised by tailor-made services paired with exclusive product quality. We receive global recognition for our high-quality tanning processes. We are passionate about sustainability, environmental responsibility and take a respectful approach to our most valuable material — leather. We are future-oriented and act conscientiously and sustainably. Each day, we aim to improve things for ourselves and future generations.
Leather has been around for thousands of years. Our work as a tannery is part of a natural cycle. Thanks to leather manufacturing, the skin and hide produced as a result of meat production is put to good use. Sustainability is a key part of our activities. We are convinced that premium quality can only be achieved through consistent economical and ecological behaviour. It is this belief which drives us to combine environmental protection and efficiency as effectively as possible. Our production processes are designed to fulfil their purpose safely and with minimal environmental impact. Careful treatment of valuable, natural resources is also a given for us.
‘Made in Germany’ sustainable premium quality: this is what the SÜDLEDER brand stands for. Economical and ecological behaviour is our top priority. Sustainability is more than just a buzzword here. Sustainability is consistently implemented throughout our entire supply chain and valued company-wide.
SÜDLEDER perfectly combines environmental protection and cost effectiveness, creating safe production processes for people and the environment. Our use of natural resources is just as important as a respectful approach to our products.
