Aviation Seat Leather Manufacturer
Lecapell GmbH has worked exclusively in the processing and finishing of leather for the past three decades. Initially, we only manufactured leather for the fashion and furniture industries, focusing primarily on high quality, fashionable aesthetics, and a pleasant feel. Our years of experience were invaluable when we later expanded to the automotive sector.
We achieved our breakthrough in the automotive industry in 1998 on the basis of constant development. The first car with a Lecapell leather steering wheel left the factory in 2001. Since then, Lecapell has also established itself as a reliable and trusted partner to the leading manufacturers in this sector.
Since Lecapell produces an absolutely unique type of leather using special finishing processes, this has also been given its own brand name – pellskin.
The 3.200 m² production hall constructed in 2012, the new development area and the 14.000 m² of expandable space at our new production site in Waizenkirchen are the largest investment in the history of our company. Lecapell seeks to continue to deliver in its position as an international market-leader with increasing efficiency and the appropriate dedication of resources.
Behind every successful production is a successful quality management system. Since the introduction of ISO 9001:2000 in 2001, the system has now been updated to the version ISO 9001:2015. In addition, the company has been ISO 14001:2015 certified since July 2017.
Lecapell is conscious of its environmental responsibility. The economic use of one of our most valuable resources – water – is ensured through the use of state-of-the-art machines. Continuous development of the production processes also contributes considerably to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
Pellskin – the timely type of leather
An innovative new leather to meet modern-day demands, which combines elegance, durability and sustainability.
Thanks to Lecapell’s special finishing process, this leather has all the features of top-grain leather and can therefore be used for the same applications.
Pellskin, a sustainable material with excellent properties, is the perfect modern leather product for the 21st century.
Conserving resources does not always mean having to do without – sometimes, it just means using what is there more efficiently.
Sustainability is more than simply carrying out certain measures. Sustainability is part of our strategy that integrates environmental, financial and social aspects into all of our business activities. To ensure that this company truly exemplifies sustainability, short-term and long-term sustainability objectives are defined, implemented and analysed with the involvement of the executive board.
Sustainable environmental protection is not limited to compliance with the applicable environmental laws, but is one of the principles this company is based on.
This approach is already reflected in the selection of the raw materials used for our production, because we have created Pellskin, an innovative type of leather. The raw material that is used is the second layer of leather that generally receives less attention. Our finishing processes are, however, able to ensure that it has the same quality as grain leather. This makes it possible to use just a single rawhide twice.
