Tannery of the Year

HELLER-LEDER elected “Tannery of the Year” at the Shanghai Fair

hellerThere were 40 first class tanneries nominated, but the international jury selected HELLER-LEDER, the German Tannery based in Hehlen, for this prestigious award.  The award honours achievements in the areas of technical innovation, environmental and social responsibility, and commitment to Society, customer care and economic sustainability.

In a solemn ceremony regional winners were first announced, with HELLER-LEDER being voted the best in Europe. But HELLER-LEDER finally became the overall winner among all the regional winners from Africa, North and South America, Asia, China and Europe.

Crowned "TANNERY OF THE YEAR 2011", the family owned company HELLER-LEDER was founded in 1920 and employs today 165 people.
