Since 1960

Karl F. G. Sohre is a company that can look back on a long tradition. Its origins reach into the 60s of the 19th century. 

Founded in Dresden as leather wholesale suppliers, tanneries in Freital and Ostritz later belonged to the company which ranked among the best-equipped leather manufacturing factories before the Second World War. 

After the turmoil of war, only the branch in Cologne remained which was continued as a leather wholesale supplier.

Sohre was taken over by the Krekelberg family who, to this date, has counted among the most important suppliers with their vegetable tannery.
