Company

We are a holding company which oversees and integrates the various market factors that play a part in the lamb and goat skin business.

This is achieved through a network of companies which are specialists in the collection and processing of raw skins in Europe for commercialisation worldwide. 

Drawing on the most important tanning tradition in Europe, we have focused our activities on the raw material itself, selecting the very best sources. Our logistics ensure that collection is swift, conservation is effective and grading is oriented towards the article. We are keenly aware that our warehouses must be the starting point for all-round quality.

Thanks to the Colomer technology used in our beamhouses, we are able to obtain pickled, wet blue and crust skins suitable for clothing, footwear or leather goods with the potential to satisfy the most demanding market requirements. 



Through research into new working methods, ongoing investment in innovation and the acquisition of modern equipment, we are also able to adapt to the regulations which protect the environment and which show respect towards society.

History

In 1792, the Leather Guild of the city of Vic (Barcelona) presented Colomer with the professional diploma certifying its capacity to commence operations.



Its activities have continued uninterrupted from generation to generation, which has made it easier to overcome the crises in the sector, the periods of upheaval, and the disputes that have occurred over the course of the last two centuries. Although export operations commenced at the end of the 19th century, the most important period of growth was in the 1940s, coinciding with the replacement of the traditional empirical methods by a new capacity for technological research. This proved to be the cornerstone of the industrial expansion which has continued to the present day.

A commitment to the overseas market has always been one of the strategic objectives of the Colomer Group. Positioning in this market has been of key importance in basic areas of the sector, such as supply, industry and commercialisation.

During the 1990s, the Colomer Group formed two divisions. On the one hand it focused on companies specialising in finished product, and on the other hand on companies specialising in the purchase and commercialisation of raw materials, as well as on industrial companies that process the skins to make semi-finished product.

As a result of the transformation of the clothing sector in Europe and the transfer of this industry to other countries where costs are lower, the Colomer Group has focused its current strategy on the raw materials division. At present, it operates with the following companies:
