General info

When I finished my studies, the tanning industry was the sector that generated the most jobs, so it was a natural process to end up working here in a tannery. Previous to coming here to Curtidos Badia, I had worked for four years in another tannery, but it was Curtidos Badia that allowed me to specialize and today I have an important job.  One should never forget that this industry is a large chain, and each area is a link of the chain.  Although it seems that logistics is the end of the chain, in fact, the final link is the client.  At least that is how I see it.  As in any logistics department, there are a series of procedures that have to be followed, but there is a lot that is not appreciated.  It is a very stressful job, with tight deadlines to be met.  Here we carry out our job with brains and physical strength, although it is more “brains on”, than “hands on” because I do have a team of between 8 and 12 people, depending on the workload.


To do my job and enjoy it, you need to understand the different phases of the tanning process.  But you also have to be responsible, respect your colleagues, and be able to work as a team member, share experiences, to be a good communicator, to manage with respect, dedication and, in my case, be a little bit of a perfectionist.   It’s always a pleasure working with people, thus “people skills” are essential.  I feel really comfortable here and am really proud of what I do, proud of working for Curtidos Badia.  I feel good.  The company has enabled me to better myself and has offered me great opportunities to grow which I would have never achieved with other firms.  My main challenge is organization.  Depending on the day and the client,  it is either easy or complex.  One also has to ensure that no mistakes are carried out when processing the order. It is easy to make a mistake, and this can adversely affect the company or the client. It is essential to control each step of the process, however small or unimportant they may seem.  Consequences can become expensive experiences.


I really appreciate the fact that I work for the Leather industry.  Firstly because we are a recycling company, we recycle and generate an added-value quality product. The ecological aspect is also important.  I am very aware of environmental and eco aspects, maybe because I have two children and want them to live in a better world.  Working here is like helping guarantee a better future for them.


My family are also proud of me.  It is important they know what I do and understand the tanning industry.  They need to appreciate it.  This is my second home and I spend many hours here. I would not like my children to work here because I want them to study and go to university.  But if they opted for studying chemistry, then why not, I would be delighted if they chose this industry.
