An exclusive service

SATRA membership is designed for companies in the footwear industry. As many of our technical services and products for footwear can also be used for leather, companies in the leather and leathergoods industries may also join as SATRA members. Being a member of SATRA is a sign of commitment to developing the safety and performance of products and services. The SATRA 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.

Member benefits

Whether you are a brand, manufacturer, supplier, sourcing company 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 drawing board to the consumer’s foot.

Our research team is experienced and a valuable resource partner for members to use to develop ideas and review materials and construction possibilities. Technical experts will help you solve any problem and work with you to improve the quality and features of your materials, components and final footwear, for example fitting and comfort.

In becoming a SATRA member you will gain access to our comprehensive facilities, performance guidelines and our trusted test methods. The SATRA name and a SATRA test report demonstrate that you are serious about providing consistent quality in your products.

Another advantage to membership is that you receive regular guidance on changes to international legislation including the latest restricted chemicals lists which will help you remain compliant.

Members have the opportunity to take advantage of SATRA’s proven production efficiency systems, and the SATRA Laboratory Accreditation programme for those companies that are equipped to test all or part of their product range in-house. We often help members set up their own test laboratories with consultation and test equipment designed and manufactured by SATRA.

The employees of member companies benefit from regular training opportunities offered free or at discounted rates at varying locations including the UK, USA, Asia and Europe. As well as accessing privileged information online, members receive our exclusive publication, SATRA Bulletin, which has been the leading industry technical journal since 1935.

The SATRA Member logo can be displayed on marketing materials including website and mobile.
