Your Problem Solving Products (dba Leather Mate West) is a major distributor of URAD leather care products from Italy. Founder, Graham B. Van Zant services retail and wholesale customers across the US. The company is an Arizona corporation and a member of WISE.
URAD total leather care product was born in 1966. Originally developed in Europe and eventually distributed in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Belgium, England and the Netherlands, URAD entered the North American market in 1983.
I came across this product in Canada in 1993. At that time it was sold under a different name, Leather Mate.
In 1995, I started marketing URAD in the US through trade shows. We had many crews travelling all over the US. Now the strongest of our sales people do their own shows and we wholesale the product to them. We also continue to market through Home Shows, Horse Shows, Motorcycle Shows, Gun Shows, Rodeos and Fairs. In 2001, we had it on QVC and sold thousand of jars. We still receive many, many orders from new and repeat customers through our website and our 800 #, which we have had since 1999.
Our goal is to make URAD line of products the No. 1 one-step Leather Care brand. We have maintained high customer satisfaction ratings that helped build for us such a loyal following–and we want to expand and let more people experience the same quality results. Tens of thousands of customers have purchased URAD products from us for over 20 years!
Today, URAD is present in major chain stores, in most shoe repair shops, in tack shops, furniture stores and more recently in some shoe stores. It is represented in over 15 countries and there are now over 150 URAD quality products.
