SATRA membership hits an eight-year high

The number of SATRA members in 2015 grew by 3 per cent increase over the previous year.

The number of companies around the world taking up membership of SATRA rose to an eight-year high in 2015, including a 3 per cent increase on the previous year.

Chief executive, Austin Simmons, said on announcing the figures: "The recession in 2007 saw many of our members experience significant difficulties and a number even went out of business. Since then our membership has gradually recovered, increasing year-on-year. During 2015 we had, numerically and financially, the best year we have had for members for almost ten years."

SATRA members comprise material and component suppliers, distributors, sourcing companies, retailers and end-users, as well as manufacturers throughout the footwear and leathergoods supply chain. More than one-quarter of SATRA members today are from China or neighbouring countries.
