SAR Major enters SA Family Business hall of fame

SAR Major Canvas Goods and Trailers has been inducted into the Family Business Australia SA Hall of Fame.

The Adelaide Advertiser reports that the achievement at the awards, held last week, was described as a huge honour by managing director Cathi Buttfield, and reflected the skill of the company’s craftsmen.

“The 15 people in the business place a lot of pride into each product we make,” Buttfield told the Advertiser.

“Family businesses are really important to the economy and Sar Major has received so many benefits from being a part of Family Business Australia, the most important being connecting and sharing knowledge with other family business members.”

The third-generation SAR was established in 1953 and produces a range of canvas goods, including tents and camping equipment, camper trailers and outdoor blinds.
