Chade as the founder of Leather Medic Inc has spent over thirty years refining his craft. He recognized that there would be a significant and ongoing demand for expert craftsmen who mastered the art of repairing and refinishing fine leathers. He was surprised to learn at the time that there were only three individuals (now retired) in North America with real expertise in this area. He studied with each of them and worked hard through the years to develop his leather expertise. Over time, he has developed processes, products and methods that have raised the art of leather repair to a new level. In recent years he has expanded to include panel replacements with leather to match original finishes, and complete upholstery restoration.
