To talk at the international trade fair for the leather processing industry, LINEAPELLE.

At Lineapelle, the leather processing industry presents its latest collections. In addition to creativity and exclusivity, the focus here is increasingly on the sustainability of luxury leather products. Of course, we are on site for this and talk to numerous partners about all matters of raw material sourcing and processing. Our uncompromising stance on safety for our customers' brands has resulted in far more appointments being requested than we were able to keep. Absolute reliability in raw material supply is more in demand than ever as a business principle.
We will make up for all the appointments that we were unable to keep due to lack of time!

By the way, congratulations on this achievement, we love what you make of it.

Klümpen – LWG Approved Trader.

On 31.05.2021 an LWG audit was carried out by the LWG auditor Jutta Knoedler at the Klümpen headquarters in Kevelaer. Not only all suppliers and supply chains were checked for their LWG suitability and affiliation, but also quantities, transport routes, permits, certificates or waste disposal. In the presence of the owner and CEO, Mr. Markus Cornelissen, the house Klümpen has again explicitly committed to the LWG Trader Protocol 3.0.1. The goal of the house Klümpen is a complete and transparent supply chain of sustainable, environmentally friendly, socially just and with high responsibility for the living animal created leather.

Security for our business partners' brands.

The procurement markets for leather are in great turmoil worldwide. Prices and qualities are subject to seemingly arbitrary fluctuations. Since it became clear at the beginning of 2020 that we were facing a pandemic which, in all probability, would have an impact on our global raw material markets, we have reacted decisively.
We were able to pre-order large quotas in all key countries of origin and secure the availability of our most important ranges for the long term. As a result, we can now guarantee our customers absolute planning security in terms of price and volume availability.
Our unique corporate policy (Leather for Brands) proves its worth especially in turbulent and difficult times.

THE FOOTWEAR AND LEATHER INDUSTRY IS GETTING BACK ON TRACK.

For several weeks we have noticed a continuous increase in industrial leather demand.
Many of our customers are already back to 100% of pre-Corona demand.
Some of our stock-on-demand customers are even increasing their production significantly above last year's volumes. This is certainly also related to the fact that in many markets it is now a matter of who gets out of the starting position the fastest.
