In the beginning of the 20th century, Waalwijk was the heart of the flourishing Dutch shoe and leather industry. In 1926, Gerrit Maas started a company and called it G.A. Maas Leder.
A great deal has changed over the years, but the founding principles of Maasleder have remained the same. We are driven by our fascination for leather. We never stop learning new things about it.
Under the management of three generations of the Maas family, the company has grown to become an international leather trader. Maasleder has become a name that tanneries and producers of shoes, fashion accessories and leather goods trust. We act as the agent for various leading Italian tanneries and work internationally with widely diverse customers. In the Netherlands, we are the most important supplier of leather for, among other things, orthopedic shoes.
