Our History

Years later, his son Guillermo Bzurovski assumed the direction of the family business and his effort consolidated a company capable of achieving high standards production for bovine and ovine leather for the international market.

In its beginnings, the tannery processed bovine leather for shoe insoles. Later on, other lines were introduced, ovine leather for clothes manufacturing alowed the business expansion and reach the international markets.

Our products are exported to several countries in Europe, Asia and America.
