Long ago, someone referred to Samtec as a different breed of cat. This is where our Tiger mascot originated. A Blog from years ago talks more of the details on how and why it stuck so well. What I am focused on today is the evolution of our love of tigers.
Walk around any Samtec facility and you will see countless tigers living amongst the office spaces, meeting room and productions areas.
We also distribute thousands of Tigers at many of our larger tradeshows. We have customers who seek us out to make sure they can add one to their collection. Most of the time we hear it is for a child or grandchild that they get to share it with when they get home!
Tiger Around the World!
After hearing these stories and the journey that some of the tigers make, we wanted to be a bit more intentional while distributing these little Tigers! Take a look at the video below that explains this a bit more.
As mentioned in the video, we have worked with our Samtec Cares team to help make a donation on your behalf to the World Wildlife Foundation for Tiger conservation. If you received a tiger at a show, you can still register them without the QR code noted. Head over to our website linked below and fill out the very simple form and that is all it takes.
For the Love of Tigers!
We love to have fun with our Tiger mascot. There was even a time when we thought about stopping all connector production and only distributing stuffed tigers. Read all about it in this Blog. If you would also like to share stories on adventures your tigers have been on, feel free to do so on our social media channels linked here.
We hope our tigers have brought you and your family joy. We plan to continue sharing our love of tigers with many more families to come!
