Tradition & future,
more than 50 years looking forward


Quimser was founded in 1966 by Salvador Esquerra Romeu, who started supplying chemical products to the leather industry.

He began trading in the heart of the leather tanning area of Igualada, one of Europe’s most traditional and respected centres of tanning, with one of the greatest levels of activity and production. Soon afterwards the business moved to a small facility located in Òdena, near Igualada, where he started to produce the first powder products using vegetable extracts for the manufacture of sole.

In the mid 1970’s QUIMSER started to build in the industrial area of Pla de la Masia. This original custom-built property has been enlarged and transformed over the years into the three warehouses that exist today. In 1984 Quimser was transformed into a corporation with the founder’s family as shareholders.

Today Quimser is a deeply rooted family business that exports two thirds of its products.
