Langlitz Leathers is a family business that was established in 1947 by Ross Langlitz. While we are no longer a basement operation, we stay small to guarantee the quality and personal attention that larger corporations just cannot provide.
Jackie and Dave
We’re not sure who is the bigger cheese… Jackie or Dave. Jackie owns the shop and Dave was a long time head honcho. Although they are retired and now live on the beautiful Oregon coast, they still offer sage advice and keep a watchful eye over their beloved shop.
Dave and Jackie’s daughter, Judy, is our technical manager. Computers, email, website, and artwork are her domain, but she dabbles in everything as she carries on the family name.
Scott is our office manager. He’s been here since 2005. Besides handling our finances, processing orders, and handling HR, he has the pleasure of chatting with customers all over the world to ensure they get exactly what they want. Check out his Instagram!
John is our production manager. He’s been here since 2001 and supervises all aspects of the production process. From fixing sewing machines, to the specialized skill of figuring the calculations for each customer’s custom fit.
Bennie is our resident veteran of the U.S. Navy. He learned his work ethic and attention to detail while running mine sweeping operations. After the Navy, he followed his passion for building, wrenching and racing motorcycles. He has worked on all brands; Harley, Suzuki, BMW, Kawasaki, and Triumph, being just a few of his certifications. He also currently races in OMRRA ( Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Association); however, at the end of the day, his greatest joy is hanging with his two kids.
