Bridge of Weir Leather Heritage

Our Heritage

Founded in 1905, Bridge of Weir Leather Company is a privately owned Scottish Company operating one of Europe's largest leather production facilities.

Historically, the Bridge of Weir roots can be traced back to 1758, seven generations of family involvement in leather manufacture. Throughout, they benefited from Scotland's advantages of an indigenous skills base, prime beef herds and a plentiful supply of soft, pure water.

Our primary commercial focus is on the automotive industry for which we develop a diverse range of leathers, spanning traditional and contemporary thinking.

At Bridge of Weir people and technology come together in a unique blend of craftsmanship and advanced manufacturing techniques. The result is the finest quality upholstery leather, exported to over 60 countries worldwide.

Building upon this heritage and cumulative experience, Bridge of Weir has been able to lead change rather than follow it.
