Xeros is the only company using ground-breaking technology to significantly reduce water in the leather production process, a resource that is quickly becoming scarce, on a global scale. Our innovative, patent-protected technology significantly reduces water and chemistry in re-tanning, which also reduces the resulting effluent, allowing tanneries a significant commercial advantage. Xeros technology works with tanneries’ existing chemical recipes but is simply more effective at delivering the chemicals into the hide. Xeros seeks experienced Project Engineers to join the team to help deploy their technology to tanneries, initially with a focus on the European market.
