“The decision to renew our application lab is fully in line with our position as industry leader in process chemicals for leather products,” says Sakamoto Yorinobu, Chief Representative of Stahl Japan limited. The lab offers clients a one-stop location, where customers and technicians together can run application trials from beamhouse tanning to finishing leather. Stahl’s innovative processing solutions are available for dealing with all types of raw material in a more sustainable way.

The new lab in Tatsuno is equipped with modern machinery to cater to customers’ needs. The lab will be used for developing new technology, trouble shooting, colour matching services and provide workshops. Furthermore, customers can use the equipment themselves to run pilot tests and new projects. This benefits small and medium-sized tanners who do not have these facilities. “Altogether, this makes us the ideal partner for customers to support them in growing their business”, Sakamoto continues.

“We are located in the heart of the Japanese leather tanning industry and therefore close to our customers.” The chemical company has nearly 40 application labs worldwide and will be opening several new labs in the coming years.
