Apr '16
SGS, a Switzerland based testing, inspection and certification company, opened a textile testing laboratory in Semarang, Indonesia recently to support the textile and apparel manufacturing companies in Central Java.

The presence of this laboratory will strengthen the local apparel industry’s ability to meet global standards and acceptability, according to a press statement released by the company. It will assist in the local manufacturer’s need to comply with international regulations and requirements, and will cater both domestic and international clients.

Complimenting SGS’s existing testing laboratory in Jakarta, this new laboratory is ideally placed for Semarang, Solo and Yogyakarta, the centre of textile industry, and Surabaya, the centre of footwear and leather industry.

“Indonesia is a hub for textile and ready-made garment exports to USA, European and Japan markets with total exports of USD 9.27 billion last year,” the release said.

“SGS’s state-of-the-art facility is fully equipped to address these requirements as well as sustainability management in the apparel and footwear industry for physical and chemical testing service,” according to the release. (MCJ)
