Has any one used this tannery in New Jersey? Good? Bad? Indifferent? How was the turn around time? Did you get your own pelts back?

Thanks

Mom and Pop run tannery

Leo does great work with very fast turn-around time

I used Tubari Ltd before Z&L.....both same quality but Leo had drastically better turn-around

Call him.....usually it's Leo that answers the phone

Leo Does great work and crafting I think he does a lot of the crafting for USA Fox or did they farm out there work. Tubari does dye work and great work on Beaver Plus they pluck and shear beaver I think the only ones in the US.

Ok, now Iím confused. I am asking about a tannery called A & L Berg located in Newark, New Jersey.

The responses I am getting are about Z & L tannery (Leo) which is also located in Newark, New Jersey.

Is it the same outfit with 2 different names or is it just coincidence or. What is going on.

BTW - I appreciate the input about Leo. Iím already familiar with his company..

Thanks

They have the same address as Leo

I have never heard of them

I'm sure Leo or A&L could offer some insight on the same location topic

Can only assume it's some sort of companion business

What does/did Z&L stand for? Maybe he changed the name?

A & L Berg has a website but not much info other than About Us, address is 366 Jetliff Ave
Z & L Trading Corp does not have a website, address is 370 Jetliff Ave

According to Google Maps, looks like both addresses are in the same building.

Berg's website makes one think they are a tannery but the locations makes one wonder if Berg is a front for Z & L. Berg's partner retired so he may have hooked up with Leo. A couple phone calls would probably sort it out.

Z&L, I think the name is from the owners name, Zelda ( wife ) and Leo ( Lewin ).

Z&L still has a office address in Brooklyn, NY in the garment district. All furs are sent to the Newark, NJ address for tanning. He prefers UPS as a carrier.

This is the phone number I used for Z&L last year.... 718-272-5190 . Itís Leoís cell number...heíll get you set up to ship your fur.

I wonder if the Berg part is the garment manufacturing part of the business anyway wissmiss I guess you will find out and can give us a book report. Did you ever get a reply on if the Western States Fur Auction was going to happen.
