About Us

Our History

KT Trading was founded in 1999 in Switzerland. The activity began by developing high-end calf materials for wholesale distribution to our customers.

In 2009, KT Trading established its own distribution centre in Asia, with a warehouse of 10.000 m2. KT Trading’s area of expertise lies in a highly developed global supply chain for executing streamlined deliveries to our customers. 

Today, KT Trading is amongst the largest entities in the industry, collaborating across a global network. We pride ourselves in having developed years of long-lasting, transparent and fruitful relationships with our suppliers and customers. These are amongst the industry’s largest and most successful companies. Our customers are mainly tanneries and manufacturers of shoes and leather goods.

Our Values

Our values are rooted in strong relationships which  embrace a multicultural environment and combine artisan craftmanship with innovative development.
We care about creating and maintaining strong, positive relationships with our colleagues, our partners, our customers, and the societies in which we live and work, with respect for diversity

Our Mission

KT Trading has the “simple”, but delicate mission of supplying high quality calf and veal pre-selected Wetblue, crust and splits to our customers. We excel at this due to our many generations of experience in the company, the state-of-the-art facilities in production, and by paying attention to the subtle details in our hides.

Our Approach

KT Trading is committed to a transparent and sustainable supply chain.
Transparency is one of our fundamental pillars towards our customers, suppliers and society. We work closely with our stakeholders to improve our traceability by investigating and implementing new tools to help us obtain transparency in the origin of the material and its sustainability.

KT Trading is committed to promoting an internal culture geared towards leading cultural and economic cooperation, sustainability and respecting the people, society and environment in which KT Trading operates.
