New benefit available to SATRA members
Collaboration with FindSourcing online platform enables SATRA members to identify footwear suppliers.
21st September 2020
SATRA has collaborated with FindSourcing, an online platform that makes it easier to find a partner in the footwear industry while ensuring transparency in the sourcing process.
To ensure SATRA members find out more about this exciting new member benefit, webinars will be held on Wednesday 23rd September at 07:00 BST for manufacturers (with a Chinese translation), 10.00 BST for manufacturers (English only) and at 16:00 BST for brands and buyers. Visit the event page for full details and to register your interest.
With travel restrictions and so many exhibitions being cancelled around the world, companies within the footwear industry have had to adapt to different ways of both marketing their products and buying what they need. SATRA therefore recognises the value of an online resource to enable the easy identification of a supplier of shoemaking components, materials or finished footwear – or to achieve greater exposure to potential customers as a producer.
Suppliers of finished footwear, components, materials and leather can sign up at no cost to create a FindSourcing profile and have their information indexed. Buyers can filter their searches and contact sellers directly via the system’s database. The program also features a quotation function permitting a buyer to submit details of his or her requirements and receive offers from suppliers. FindSourcing will then connect the buyer directly with the seller. SATRA members who choose to participate can be identified through a specific filter search and highlight their membership, laboratory accreditation and leather grading status on their profile.
