As a member of the SCHAFSTALL Group, SCHAUCO is a global acting company with 50 years of experience in trading and processing hides and splits of different weight classes and origins.

In the early years the business activities were exclusively focused on the trading and sales of drop splits and the respective by-products. Over the years the product range could be expanded by the areas of wetblue, wetwhite (FOC) and wet-green® (olive-tanned) hides, crust- and finished leather for different kind of industries. The production of kangaroo leather as a niche product for mainly sport shoes and motorcycle clothing is completing the portfolio.

Our leathers are being processed by the certified high-tec contract tanneries SlovTan Contract Tannery spol., Slovakia (100% sister company) and SUEDLEDER GmbH & Co., Germany (50% sister company) under consideration of the strictest environmental regulations.

The headquarter of SCHAUCO is located in "Muelheim an der Ruhr" an old and former traditional leather- and tannery centre in the Western part of Nordrhine-Westfalia called "Ruhrgebiet". Muelheim has a 350 year old tradition of producing different types of leathers. Because of the proximity to the river "Ruhr" and the access to oak woods as a supplier of tanning products the city became the perfect location for the German leather industry and was soon known all over the world.
