Friedrich Sturm GmbH & Co. KG offers a
wide array of hides, skins, splits, wools, wet blue and crust from
cattle and sheep.
Almost all of our hides
originate from large, licensed European Community abattoirs. We have
also provided most of the smaller abattoirs in the last few years
with skinning machines allowing them to improve and reach their best
quality raw merchandise.
Our fresh hides derived
from cattle and sheep become one of the following seven basic
selections (note: the pictures available may take some time to load).
Chilled and wet
salted hides are our traditional products and consist today, as they
have in the past, of a large part of our production. The trim (headless,
short shanked) and the sorting of hides is in accordance with the
well known high quality standards of Germany.
Excess flesh is removed from the fresh hide
by our most up to date fleshing machines before salting to result
in the fleshed hide product. Wet salted, fleshed hides, available
to our customers overseas have been salted by our staff and placed
for a short period of time in to storage (approx. 10-14 days of
penetration) for moisture removal and preservation.
