Company Staleks

01 Staleks operates a modern full-cycle fabrication facility

Staleks operates a modern full-cycle fabrication facility, where production processes span from preparation of metal bars to packaging of ready product. Our manufacturing facility is equipped with hi-tech machinery by leading American, German, Italian and Japanese brands. Use of the state of the art equipment guarantees ultimate product quality and eases even the most challenging technological tasks. Furthermore, certain machines and equipment are designed within the company and manufactured either in our workshop or as a custom order by our overseas partners. Staleks manufacturing facilities have over 1700 machines in 13 production units.

02 Custom staff training program

Some processes require extra precision and meticulousness that machinery, no matter how sophisticated, cannot provide. That is why, for instance, all sharpening operations are exclusively manual. Due to specifics and peculiarities of the manicure instrument manufacturing we have introduced custom training programs for our staff. Upon completion of the training course our employees have all necessary knowledge and skills required for high-quality, efficient work.


We employ over 1,100 skilled professionals that contribute to the daily output of about 6000 product units. Our product range has over 40 items: from professional manicure instruments to leather accessories. We manufacture more than 2,000,000 production units annually, and every year our capacity is growing. Staleks is the next generation technology meeting utter professionalism – the ultimate combination for making perfect tools.


We at Staleks dedicate ourselves to the product quality. Our production cycle includes input and output quality assurance processes. Quality of incoming raw materials is checked at the certified labs where physical and chemical aspects of steel are analyzed. Stainless medical grade steel imported from Spain is used for all instrument manufacturing. This sort of steel is exceptionally resistant to corrosion and has unmatched hardness, ensuring long-lasting sharpness. We use such steel for both professional and home use ranges of our instrument.

Output quality assurance is performed by our QC department. QC specialists check all products for compliance with regulations and standards.We are constantly working on improving quality assurance procedures, so the QC department workers are periodically attending workshops and seminars by prominent beauty professionals to learn about peculiarities of use of various instruments. All that increases thoroughness of all tests and checks performed. If defects are found, the instrument is returned for rework. This meticulous approach guarantees that only high-quality products meeting all standards find their way to the market.

Staleks has implemented ISO 9001:2015, an efficient quality management system compliant with international standards. Competent work cycle management is the key factor for manufacturing top notch products. Staleks is, first of all, instruments of unquestionable quality.
