Histoire tanneries

Our story

Established in 1946, Tanneries of Puy is renowned for the traditional know-how of high-end calfskin fabrication.

Thanks to our team of almost 140 people, our location fast became one of the main leather producers, acknowledged for its expertise in the Boxcalf finishing, and became a member of “Fédération Française de la Tannerie”. Acquired in 2015 by our long standing client, HCP, we are committed to keeping our exceptional know-how within our local community.
More than 50 % of our sales come from abroad: Europe (UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal…), America (USA, Canada, Mexico…) and Asia (Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, China…).


Tanneries of Puy is part of the Hcp group, a group made up of several tanneries. We work in synergy with The Tannery Annonay, tannery of calf leather, which is also world renowned in tanning box. In true complementarity, our two tanneries pool their expertise to best meet the demands of our customers.

Sustainable Development

In order to minimize our environmental footprint and to protect the health and safety of men and women working for us, we are engaged in the sustainable development process. Guaranteeing the safe handling of leather, sharing our know-how, and maintaining our relationships with community stakeholders are all subjects on which we are focused on a daily basis.

We are very concerned about the impact of our activity on the environment, whether it is the ecosystem to which we are connected or the urban environment that welcomes us. We place this subject at the center of our concerns and always look at our actions in the long term.
