Simona Tanning

About Us

State-of-the-art

Welcome to Simona Tanning!

The Simona Family and I personally would like to welcome you to navigate our website, social media accounts and tour our state-of-the-art operations. I hope you can learn more about our facilities, products, sustainable and innovative solutions, and approach to leather manufacturing.

We have invested careful thought in the design of every facet of our operation for a more sustainable future. The layout creates more streamlined operations and leaner manufacturing practices, emphasizing efficiency and adaptability for our ever evolving industry.

Thank you for your partnership with Simona Tanning. The only things we are more passionate about than leather are the relationships shared with our partners.

Marcelo Marder - CEO

Everyone in our team is a contributor;
Success only comes with hard work;

Simona Team

Our team

We build and maintain a workplace culture that makes employees feel safe and with a mental and physical health balance.

Simona wants everyone to feel like they are in their second home when they are at work.

We are constantly organizing BBQs, lunch, dinners, walks, a monthly birthday celebration, gifts (birthday and holiday), etc.

The get togethers outside work helps the team to build a strong relationship and connection between them, as they get to know each other better and become good friends. Having a good friend relation inside the factory and office has shown that this improves the team communication and collaboration, and more importantly, it leads to a happier life overall.

Our employees have bonus incentives to recognize employees for their effort and achievements.

Also, we invest in courses, training, lectures and resources to help them improve their jobs and personal grown.

“We are ONE team, ONE goal, ONE mission.”
