Automotive Leather

Schaffer Corporation first diversified into leather in 1984, but major growth did not begin until 1994, with the inclusion of Automotive Leather within the division. The Automotive Leather business has been a core driver of profitability in past years and this has been substantially due to our partnership with the Automotive Leather division Chairman, Mr Anton Mayer (who is also a Director of Schaffer Corporation Limited).

The Automotive Leather division is a global business in a global industry.

Schaffer Corporation owns 83% of the division, which supplies leather to automotive manufacturers in Europe and Asia. The division produces quality automotive leather to a strong and regionally diverse customer base.

Leather processing and finishing facilities are located in Slovakia and Australia, and offshore component cutting plants in Slovakia and China.

The Automotive Leather division’s operations employ superior technology, and the world’s best manufacturing techniques at every stage. The company’s Slovakian and Australian finishing facilities guarantee colour precision by using a computer controlled mixing process and application via high precision coating process. This achieves correct and standard coat weights across each hide. The company’s leather cutting facilities employ a combination of press cutting and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) cutting technology to achieve maximum precision and production efficiency.

The result is the highest quality automotive leather with the perfect blend of colour, comfort, durability and style.

The Automotive Leather division supplies iconic car manufacturers and brands including Ford, Land Rover, Audi, Mercedes and Nissan.
