Long-time customer of 32 years, Saddlery Trading Company, found a trustworthy solution for sealing their international freight orders with Signet. To ensure the best quality in an altogether rough shipping environment, STC has relied on Signet’s Filament Tape for over a decade.

Saddlery Trading Company distributes on average 3,521 horse-riding and equestrian equipment orders each month to their community of growing customers, both overseas, and within Australia.

Servicing the Australian agricultural and equestrian market has been a passion of founder Greg Grant’s since he established the business in 1973 following a successful career as a Stock Agent in rural New South Wales.

Today, Saddlery Trading Company has grown to become Australia’s largest horse tack retailer. Signet’s Filament Tape is used to seal their export orders because of its strong adhesive properties. Since the implementation of this product, they have seen a 100% success rate of cartons staying sealed.

The cross-woven fibreglass strands in the tape enhance the strength and adhesion, which makes it ideal for heavy-duty applications.

“We trust the Filament Tape we get from Signet to last the whole way through international transit, especially when its subjected to rough handling. We take great pride in our quality rate; we’ve had no issues of our cartons opening in transit since introducing the tape.” —John O’Leary, STC Operations Manager.

Saddlery Trading holds the strong relationships they have with customers in high stead, which is why they partnered with Signet back in the 1980s and have never looked back.
