Our Family

Discover what it means to be part of the Royal Smit & Zoon family.

Royal Smit & Zoon is a 7th generation owned family business. Marc Smit, the current owner, has taken over the company from his father Joost Smit and it was Albert Smit who founded our company in 1821. More than 200 years of entrepreneurship, innovation, dedication and passion have made Royal Smit & Zoon the company it is today: a leading worldwide player in providing sustainable solutions for leather manufacturing.

But, we will always stay a family company first. And when we want you to meet ‘our family’, we mean everybody working at Royal Smit & Zoon. All our employees are part of the Smit & Zoon family.
