APLF – International Leather Fair in Hong Kong

Hall 1, stand 1B-B10

This year we were happy to welcome again many customers and business partners on our booth.

One of our annual highlights – the German coffee – is not only trade talk but also pull factor for a visit of our booth.



Image movie “Pro Leather”

The image movie “Pro Leather” has been developed by a group of committed companies of which A+B Hides GmbH & Co. KG is a member. The movie shows that a responsible-minded tannery treats leather as a natural resource with care and that this can happen hand in hand with corporate responsibility. Still too many consumers do not know that the cattle hide as source for leather is a by-product of the meat industry and that a hide can only become a high-end finished leather when the animal has been treated well.

Laser – traceability

After more than one year of planning and development we are now able to use our new laser system. With a purpose-made laser the ear tag number (which is a unique identification number of the animal) is burned directly into the hide. This number is still visible after tanning, dyeing and finishing of the hide so a real traceability is given.
