SATRA appoints new team leader
To meet demand for furniture and floorcoverings testing
24th July 2018
SATRA's Johnny Worthington has been appointed senior team leader in the busy furniture and floorcoverings laboratories as demand for testing in these product sectors continues to grow.
Johnny's responsibilities will include managing the work flow in the laboratory, handling customer technical enquiries, maintaining ISO 17025 accreditation and driving continuous improvement in the quality and integrity of the work produced by SATRA. ‘Having worked in most departments in my 20 years at SATRA,' said Johnny, 'I am thrilled to go back into furniture and floorcoverings where I hope my experience in quality services and laboratory accreditation will bring added value to an already well-established and respected team.'
Geoff Bindley, SATRA’s furniture and floorcoverings testing business manager, said ‘Johnny’s appointment to senior team leader is an important step for us allowing me to concentrate on more client visits and expanding our customer base.'
SATRA has also invested in a new universal fatigue tester for assessing chairs, cabinets and beds, which will double the current testing capacity. 'So far this year we have seen that table and bed testing work has tripled, cabinet testing has doubled, chair testing has become extremely busy as has interest in SATRA Diamond Product Certification,' continued Mr Bindley.
