SATRA presentation at Chinese university

Reporting on a well-attended technical presentation.

SATRA’s China office general manager Liam Donnelly was recently invited by Sichuan University’s College of Light Industry, Textile and Food Engineering in the Chinese city of Chengdu to make a technical presentation on the subject of ‘risk assessment and safety critical testing of footwear’. This event was as part of the university’s international internship week, and is the fourth year SATRA has provided such technical assistance.

The 2017 event was hosted by Dr Xu Bo from Sichuan University and Dr Nicolas Zhou of Huidu Leather Shoes City, and around 100 delegates – including students and representatives of leading footwear manufacturers – were in attendance. Dr Xu gave a welcome speech to thank SATRA for its support, and highlighted the cooperation between the two organisations. Wu Jianxin, technical Director of leading Chinese retailer and manufacturer Red Dragonfly also participated in this event. SATRA’s presentation concluded with a question and answer session.


The event was well attended by students and representatives of leading footwear manufacturers

Sichuan University has a good reputation for the quality of the education available in its footwear and leather department, with many of China’s new footwear and leather technologists graduating from the college every year. Dr Xu also arranged for Mr Donnelly and Vivien Hsieh from SATRA’s membership and marketing department to visit several footwear factories during their stay in Chengdu. As part of the training scheme SATRA provides to Sichuan University, two students – Wendy Wang and Julie Zhao – were invited to receive five weeks’ training in SATRA’s Dongguan office during August.
