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."
