Conneaut Leather, a US manufacturer of upholstery leather since 1903 in Conneaut, Ohio, acquired the sister companies Cortina Leathers and DMS Leathers.

According to Jack Prause, president of Conneaut Leather, bringing together these two companies offers customers a “best of both worlds” leather solution. With the acquisition, Conneaut Leather is now able to offer a broad array of in-stock, high-end Italian leathers as well.

Conneaut Leather started producing hides in 1903, and brings its manufacturing capabilities to the merger, including large in-stock lines, custom leathers, strikeoffs and special finishes including Crypton and cut-to-pattern.
