Carville National Leather Corp. welcomes Andy Lehne who has joined the firm as Technical Director. "The addition of Andy to our team ushers in a very exciting chapter in our company's history. His background and experience will mark a new beginning resulting in improved internal organization, greater team work and improved customer satisfaction" said company President, Bobby Carville. Mr. Lehne's trained at the West German Tanner's School in Reutlingen, Germany and has worked at such prestigious tanneries as Elmo Leather USA, Seton Leather, Bader de Mexico and GST Autoleather.
In our continuing effort to develop and market new leather products, Carville National Leather is launching a new line of leather tiles for use as floor, wall and ceiling coverings. Our product, unique in the market, offers improved dimensional uniformity, greater durability and wear resistance and unmatched beauty while at the same time, being priced below most other leather tiles on the market. Many years of both market and product research have led us to the conclusion that the market for leather tiles is growing rapidly and by offering improved product performance at a more competitive price will grow this market even larger. We will be marketing our line of leather tiles through a wide variety of private designers, design centers, high-end retail stores and boutiques.
Carville National Leather is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the New York State Department of Economic Development through the Environmental Management Investment Group. This grant, applied for by Carville National Leather, will allow for the research and development of a new recycling technology intended to convert tannery waste into marketable material in the textile and related industries.
The details of the technology are protected by United States and International Patents and by a Confidentiality Agreement between Carville National Leather and the inventor of the technology, a director at the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow.
“We are very proud and excited by the news.” Said Bobby Carville, President of Carville National Leather, Corp. “This project will strongly compliment our goals of maintaining our commitment to cutting-edge technology in manufacturing and eliminating our impact to the environment through improved science and process.
