BAUCE, Half a century of success

BAUCE tanning tech

For 49 years, leader in leather sammying and drying machines. This is the slogan chosen by BAUCE, internationally renowned company based in Trissino (Vicenza province) specialized in the tanning technologies field, dealing with the design, manufacturing and sales of sammying machines for wet blue and through-feed setting out machines – a slogan featured also inside the stand set up for the latest edition of the Tanning Tech exhibition. An enterprise established in 1970 (hence, next year will mark the celebrations for the 50th anniversary) by Attilio Bauce, who, when he was just 23, decided to kick off a business revolving around the development and production of through-feed sammying and setting out machinery. Now, the company, active on the market with the brand BAUCE TRI.MA, is led by the second generation of the family, more specifically by Luca, the current CEO, and by the sisters Sabrina and Michela, in charge of the marketing, sales and administration departments.

“In our stand,” explained Luca Bauce, “we put on display a wide range of machines, starting with our core business, namely through-feed sammying and setting out machinery, and some laboratory technologies. The main innovation was the new model provided with heated cylinders, specialized in the processing of both satin and smooth leather: among other things, it manages to reduce the drying times, resulting in a humidity drop by 90% as well as in many other benefits concerning the end quality of leather, that is softer and more delicate to the touch. We have already started producing this machine, and, by the end of the year, we aim at manufacturing a dozen or so models.”
In addition to the headquarters based in Trissino, close to the Arzignano’s tanning district, the BAUCE Group can rely, from April 2005, on a new overseas enterprise called Bauce Do Brasil, located in Ivoti, in the Rio Grande do Sul region. “The South American market,” explained Luca Bauce, “is still one of our main export destinations, just like Asia, with China at the forefront. www.bauce.com
