Wollsdorf - crowned the global tannery of the year

18 August 2015

Austrian based tannery Wollsdorf Leather has been associated with the Australian and New Zealand leather industry for over 30 years and has established itself as the preferred supplier of high quality leather for various applications.

In the aviation industry, Wolldorf’s unique lightweight leather is used for seats, arm-rests, head-rests and panelling and supplied to many major airlines including Qantas, Virgin Australia, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines as well as manufacturers such as Honda Jet. 

Wolldorf is also the world’s leading producer of steering wheel leather, supplying the leather for 25,000 steering wheels per day or 40% of the world’s car production.

The raw material is mainly sourced from Europe. What makes Wollsdorf’s leather products unique is the Surface Protection System (SPS) finish, which greatly improves the soiling characteristics of the leather and makes it easier to clean. SPS is anti-bacterial, mould- resistant and does not require subsequent impregnation throughout its entire life cycle.

The company is committed to environmental sustainability and was the first tannery in Europe to acquire the environment certificate ISO 14001. Their products have been designated as eco-leather due to a chrome-free tanning process.

Besides numerous other awards and prizes in recent years, Wollsdorf was crowned the global tannery of the year at the All China Leather Exhibition last September.
