Let me introduce myself, my name is Max Duymelinck. I am 21 years old and I studied in Eindhoven at the Fontys Hogeschool. I studied business management for medium and small business, here I learned how to start and manage a business.
As a school assignment, I had to create a fictional company. However, I liked this so much that I went ahead with the idea I had. This grew into a fun/beautiful company in a short time.
I focus on the import and resale of animal hides. The idea of importing and reselling animal hides came from my father (Frank Duymelinck). My father used to own the company called "De Lederratie", this was a furniture and car upholstery company that worked exclusively with leather. In addition, my father also traded in leather and animal hides. Because of this history, business relationships and experience, I also entered the market.
I think it is very important that the cow hides, sheep hide and other animal hides come from the meat industry.
In 2021, my father and I were introduced to Taxidermy / taxidermy. My father likes his work (taxidermist) so much that he started focusing on making and restoring taxidermy. When making and selling taxidermy, it is very important that the animals have the correct papers. For example, a tiger may be sold provided it has some sort of passport (Cites A1 document). We find this extremely important as we are very much against poaching.
