SATRA expert visits China office

SATRA footwear expert Sue Winckle recently travelled from the UK to temporarily work in the organisation’s Dongguan office and laboratory. While in China, Sue assisted with whole shoe and component testing, and visited a number of SATRA members’ factories to provide technical advice and to share her many years of industry experience in the effective use of upper and lining materials. Sue’s role at SATRA often involves troubleshooting, in which she assists members to overcome unusual footwear challenges. She also conducts a variety of non-routine testing procedures.

A range of test machinery built by SATRA in the UK has been installed in the footwear testing laboratory, which is fully equipped to test all types of safety footwear, as well as more general shoes and boots. The facility also includes temperature-controlled and environmentally conditioned testing areas.
