The split trading is based on our own wetblue and crust production for furniture and automobile leather. Furthermore we obtain large quantities of raw splits from tanneries in Germany and the adjoining countries. The hides are always splitted in lime.
According to the general demand and the respective customer requirements we select our double butts in fresh condition or conserve the splits by chrome and synthetic tanning (wetblue/wetwhite) or alternatively by brining (wetsalting). The croupons are an important resource for leathergoods, belts and shoes and are used by customers in the automotive industry for steering wheels and seats.
Shoulders and bellies are used by the gelatine and collagen industry.
