Wollsdorf Leather chooses OmnAvia Interiors as North American distributor


OmnAvia Interiors has been chosen as the exclusive distributor in North America of Wollsdorf Leather’s leathers for the business and private jet market. The two companies have enjoyed a “strong relationship” over the past four years.

“With our strengthened relationship with OmnAvia Interiors we believe our level of attention to the aviation market will grow, and our service level will be even stronger,” said Rick Colford, president at Wollsdorf USA.

“We have always believed that Wollsdorf Leather is the best value in the market for flame-treated aviation leather,” said Robin Butler, managing partner at OmnAvia. “Its Austrian tannery is incredibly managed, and the leather is processed using the same attention to the technical demands of production that make the tannery the largest supplier of automotive steering wheel leather in the world.”

Wollsdorf Leather has provided flame-treated leather for aircraft seating for many years, with customers including Lufthansa Airlines. Wollsdorf currently produces seat covers for new production aircraft manufactured by OEM Diamond Aircraft and is specified on numerous commercial airline seating programs throughout the world. The company maintains an inventory of 35 colors in its Ambassador Collection of flameproof aviation leather, and 25 stock colors in its Mammut line, which the company says meets horizontal burn requirements for Part 91 and experimental aircraft.

Wollsdorf USA’s recent move to a larger, more modern facility in High Point, North Carolina, enables it to better serve its markets in North America. These include the aerospace, office furniture and automotive industries. For example, this is where it supports Ford F-150 interior production.
