For the 2017th edition of APLF LEATHER & MATERIALS+, the Spanish tanning industry will be present through a group pavilion of 7 renowned tanneries and PELLECURTEX, a new Spanish company that willl be participating for the first time in Asia Pacific’s largest professional fair for leather and materials.
The small representation of the Spanish industry is definitely not reflective of the importance which the Spanish Tanners Association attributes to one of the most important shows outside EU territory, yet many Spanish companies are choosing between APLF in Hong Kong and ACLE in Shanghai. This is mainly due to the fact that the majority of companies are family-run businesses and manpower necessary to attend all shows which are considered key in the development of their businesses.
Acexpiel is happy with the participation, as this select group is highly representative of the quality, innovation and craftsmanship of the articles produced in the Iberian Peninsula, and hopes to be able to attract more enterprises for following APLF editions, since they have seen an increase in enquiries over the last few months.
Companies attending: Casas I Fills; Combalia; Inter-Leather; Curtidos Badia; Verdeveleno, Riba Guixa, Morera Pell and Inpelsa.
Under the umbrella of the Spanish Tanners you can also find an interesting participation of chemical companies, such as Leather Química and Texapel. The highly renowned company Olcina will also be present. Outside the group participation, we have Pellecurtex and Quimser, a tanner and chemical company respectively.
QUIMSER offers an extensive range of customized chemicals for the whole leather process, from beamhouse to finishings.
