• The leather that cares

    about people

75 % of all leather is produced in developing and emerging countries. In contrast, terracare® leather has been manufactured for four generations by a German family business: as environmentally respectful and socially responsible as possible.

Good for the environment and the community

When we talk about responsibility, we do not only mean the environment, but also the community surrounding us. Therefore, our social responsibility is regularly certified by institutions like TÜV and our customers.

Our employees are thankful for that: everyone always gives their best and we are proud of this fact. This extraordinary performance combined with the dilligence and wealth of experience of our employees results in an exceptional product "Made in Germany".

Active in education and training

The profession of the tanner is a centuries-old, well respected craft. And we want to keep it that way. That is why we consistently invest in training and professional development.

In close cooperation with the Forschungsinstitut für Leder und Kunststoffbahnen (FILK) we have been training apprentices and tannery masters for decades and we often permanently employ them following their education. Every year, up to six apprentices join us to complete a training as master chemists or leather technicians before they graduate as journeymen. We actively support our trainees in this project in order to expand their career opportunities - which of course makes us very happy.

Highest level of work safety

terracare® leather is manufactured in many steps by human hands and machines. Particular care is required when machinery is part of the production process.

The highest level of occupational safety is therefore a matter of course for us: Our machines are safety-monitored and comply with the strict German safety regulations.

Furthermore we constantly train our employees in handling the equipment properly in order to minimize risks. We also provide each employee with his own personal protective equipment (PPE) free of charge. After all, the well-being of our workforce is fundamental to our work.

Social benefits "Made in Germany"

terracare® leather is particularly proud to bear the designation of origin "Made in Germany". As a result, this means that -by global standards- the social security of our employees is extremely high.

We see it as our corporate duty to support this welfare state principle. Our business partners share and value this view. By purchasing terracare® products, end users can also actively contribute to the maintenance and expansion of this exemplary social system.
