You never stop learning

They say that you never stop learning, and judging from a series of meetings I had last week it is very true. I have been fortunate to have visited tanneries far and wide around the world, of all types from quite primitive to very modern, over many years. What I sometimes fail to remind myself is that in recent years I have only been visiting some of the most modern and well managed plants. It is easy to come away with a view that the industry is uniformly excellent.

Listening to young tanners from all round the world and others travelling in the chemical and machinery businesses highlights more than simple differences in the size and the modernity of the plants.
