Challenging times increase demand for technical expertise

Mar '09
In a year when less consumer demand caused production across the world to fall, actual interest from manufacturers in SATRA technical expertise rose on the previous year. In 2008, SATRA attracted its highest ever level of membership subscription income. It is an indication that, in challenging times, manufacturers and international brands value the technical excellence and authority of the UK SATRA Technology Centre.

“SATRA has always provided the strongest technical package to companies manufacturing in the footwear and leather industries” says Alan Drage, Head of SATRA Sales, Marketing and Member Services. “However, with the current global financial situation, our subscription results are very pleasing and, most importantly, enable SATRA to continue to invest in facilities and services for the benefit of all members.”

SATRA was founded on the basis that by pooling resources manufacturers would have access to a central organisation offering far greater facilities and expertise than most individual companies could either afford or justify. The idea of a single organisation providing for all the needs of its members is as valid today as it was 90 years ago.

SATRA is a leading authority on the technical aspects of a wide range of consumer products, as well as international legislation and testing. Many of its test methods become industry standards and its production efficiency and accreditation systems are unrivalled. Product testing plays a vital role in the control of product quality and in-house test facilities that are accredited by SATRA are seen to have a definite competitive edge over those that don't.

SATRA is increasing its research and development activities in 2009 in order to continue to provide the very best technical support and advice to help maintain and improve business for its members in a difficult period.
