The SATRA name and logo is recognised and respected in supply chains throughout the world. Customers are confident when they know they are doing business with a SATRA member company.
Whether you are a brand, manufacturer, component supplier, sourcing company, distributor or retailer you will want to produce and sell footwear that is cost-effective, fit-for-purpose and in demand. SATRA membership can help you at every step in the process from the design to the consumer.
Premier technical support
In becoming a SATRA member you will gain access to our comprehensive facilities, performance guidelines, trusted test methods, and our most valuable asset, our people. SATRA’s technical and research teams are experienced and a valuable resource partner for members to use to test and develop ideas and review materials and construction possibilities. SATRA’s experts will help you solve any problem and work with you to improve the quality and performance features of your materials, components and final footwear.
Premier knowledge and training
SATRA members enjoy privileged access to technical articles and training that draws on 100 years of experience in helping companies bring product to market successfully in global supply chains. SATRA publishes regular member-only publications including SATRA Bulletin which has been the industry-leading technical journal since 1935. Another advantage to membership is that you receive regular guidance on changes to legislation including the latest SATRA restricted chemicals lists which will help you remain compliant.
In being a SATRA member you can take advantage of a number of member-only initiatives according to the specific nature of your business. For example, manufacturers have the opportunity to achieve SATRA Accredited Laboratory status in order to test at the point of manufacture, and to install SATRA production efficiency systems that help reduce waste and save on production costs. Brands could use SATRA’s Comfort Index and guidance on fit and sizing to help raise customer loyalty and boost sales. Components suppliers might be interested in the half price member rates when advertising in SATRA Bulletin magazine.
Member rates on technical services
Becoming a SATRA member enables you to benefit from reduced rates for testing, test equipment, technical books and advertising.
