BÖNNIGHEIM, GERMANY (April 12, 2018) – With the opening of a textile testing laboratory in Gurugram, India, the testing service provider and research partner, Hohenstein, has again raised the bar for the textile industry. Just recently, in July 2018, the company opened a textile testing laboratory with a comprehensive service portfolio in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Starting Dec. 8, 2018, Hohenstein India will also be able to offer its tailormade services in one of the world’s textile hotspots.
“For more than 70 years, Hohenstein has stood for textile expertise along the entire textile production chain. With the new laboratories in India and Bangladesh, we’re growing a network of expertise from which everyone will benefit.” Prof. Dr. Stefan Mecheels, third-generation lead of the family-run business, said.
“Good, consistent cooperation is very important for Hohenstein: close exchange between the laboratories in Germany, Hong Kong, Bangladesh and India ensures more customer proximity and faster order processing.”
“One thing is certain,” Mecheels said, “wherever the examinations, tests and analyses take place, our laboratories all work with the most modern equipment according to the same standards.”
With a grand opening by Prof. Dr. Mecheels, the new laboratory in Gurugram will be launched and fully operational after a construction period of eleven months. During tours, visitors can get an impression of the local capabilities.
With around 50 employees on a total of around 3000 square meters, Hohenstein India will offer textile manufacturers, brand suppliers and retailers a variety of textile technology and chemical tests such as performance testing, restricted substance list (RSL) compliance, harmful substance control, quality control and inspections, and expert report services.
With more than 40 offices and laboratories worldwide, Hohenstein is an international testing partner in the textile industry. Hohenstein’s research centers around the interaction between textiles, humans and the environment. It is a founding member and leading provider of the OEKO-TEX® portfolio of services such as the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification, the international standard for safe textiles, and is certified by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC ID #1058) as a third-party, independent laboratory for CPSIA compliance verification.
