Today, the American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) announced Intertek, a leading international provider of quality and safety solutions, as its new footwear technology services partner. As the footwear technical services provider chosen by the AAFA membership, Intertek will now offer discounted testing services, as well as other programs and new events, for all AAFA footwear member brands.

“AAFA's new partnership came as a direct result of a member-driven initiative to establish a comprehensive technical solutions program that would be available to all AAFA-member footwear brands and their suppliers worldwide, not just AAFA footwear company members,” explained Kevin M. Burke, president and chief executive officer, AAFA.

“Our alignment with Intertek will meet the needs of our membership, with technical expertise available in the United States and worldwide.” Intertek has a network of more than 1,000 laboratories and offices with over 23,000 people in 110 countries around the world.

Intertek will provide all AAFA-member footwear brands and their suppliers with a minimum 20 percent discount on its industry leading, technical testing services. Beyond this savings program, AAFA and Intertek will collaborate on special events and other innovative programs to benefit members, including conducting an Intertek & AAFA U.S. Annual Road Show, serving as a technical expert resource for AAFA members, providing timely articles on the latest technical issues for AAFA publications and more.

Gene Rider, president of Intertek Consumer Goods North America, explains, “Intertek is honored to leverage our value-added solutions to AAFA members in order to not only enhance their products, processes, and brands but also enable members to dedicate their primary energies to their core business activities.”
