Thema System: experts in leather conditioningThema System is a Tuscan company specialising in leather conditioning systems.
Thema System is a Tuscan company specialising in leather conditioning systems, internationally known for its tunnel finishing systems operating in continuous cycle and for its dry-room conditioning systems containing aerial conveyor (batch). A production segment that is developing discretely. “Finally, there is a growing awareness of the importance of leather conditioning in the sector, which is fundamental for improving the quality of the finished leather and its quantitative performance,” explains the entrepreneur Marco Fogli. “The strength of Thema System lies in its ability to analyse the needs of individual tanneries and therefore to propose “customised” systems based on specific needs. The most important thing in this field,” continues Fogli, “is to be able to obtain the complete standardisation of finished leather regardless of the climate, humidity and season. We must always remember that leather behaves differently according to the latitude or season: drying skins in Thailand or in Sweden is very different, for example. And this becomes even more important in the case of tanning groups that have production plants in different countries, because you cannot equip a company indistinctly without taking into account the climatic factors,” continues the manager of the company based in Montopoli in Val d’Arno (Pisa).
Following massive investments in research, the Tuscan company founded in 1985 has quickly forged ahead by proposing more and more sophisticated systems in terms of the command and control of the process, up to the model with continuous sector-drying that allows drying or finishing skins with different humidity values in the same working cycle.
Today Thema System is growing in spite of an international market marked by uncertainty. “In the last three years we have grown thanks to the requests of tanneries working in the automotive sector, the only one that is currently moving forward,” concludes Marco Fogli.
