Magnum Achieves SATRA's Monumental 3000th Certification

Essex, Great Britain — In a ceremony in Great Britain, Magnum was presented with SATRA's 3000th EC-Type Examination Certification. The landmark certification was granted for three styles in Magnum's best-selling Stealth Collection: Steath II, Stealth II Side Zip and Stealth II Leather.

SATRA, a non-profit organization, is the world's leader in research and technology for consumer goods industries. Over 20 current styles of Magnum safety footwear are already certified by the agency.

An EC-Type Examination Certificate is awarded by a notified body such as SATRA to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) which meets the essential health and safety requirements of European Directive 89/686/EEC (known as the PPE Directive). Certification is determined through performance testing and assessment of technical documentation associated with the product.

Derek Robertson, Sales Manager for Magnum UK said, "This certification is very important as it shows our customers that we will go that extra mile to ensure their safety. The fact that the SATRA name is on this certification adds additional weight and authority."

Magnum Launces Interactive Consumer Program: M.T.A.C. (Magnum Tactics Advisory Commission)

Modesto, CA — Magnum today officially launched a new interactive consumer program: M.T.A.C. (Magnum Tactics Advisory Commission). Magnum knows it's crucial to consult with consumers on a regular basis in order to build the most quality-crafted products to fulfill all occupational footwear and apparel needs. M.T.A.C. was assembled to call upon for product testing, feedback/testimonials, new product ideas and marketing direction.

M.T.A.C. membership is free, and upon registering each member receives an M.T.A.C. membership card and a thank you gift. M.T.A.C. members who opt into the mailing list* will receive sneak peaks and notification of new products before public release, as well as special discounts and offers on Magnum purchases.

Based on variables such as occupation and shoe/apparel size, Magnum will call upon select members to wear-test new Magnum products. This provides the consumer the chance to voice their opinions and impact the development of products they rely upon every day. Testimonials from M.T.A.C. members will frequently be posted on the Magnum website,

From this Commission, Magnum will assemble the M.T.A.C. Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will consist of elite industry leaders and influencers in the tactical and industrial fields.
