TÜV SÜD’s Gurgaon lab aims to further expedite growth of the industry by offering world class testing solutions, ensuring international safety standards and managing turnaround times in a cost effective manner.

“Consumers in India and around the globe are increasingly demanding highest quality products. As a result, Indian industries are constantly seeking expert advice to strike a balance between quality, profitability and sustainability. Having recognised this need, TÜV SÜD is investing in superior labs in India, where we offer testing solutions and utilise our multidisciplinary expert pool to ensure that businesses run at maximum efficiency,” said Dr. Axel Stepken, Chairman of the Board of Management, TÜV SÜD AG, at the inauguration of the lab.

“The opening of the lab in Gurgaon is a significant milestone for the company, and one of the most important investments in 2012.  Among other key sectors, the lab will cater to the areas with the highest growth potential such as food and textile, which have been estimated to grow in India  to US $200 billion and US $ 100 billion respectively by 2015. The lab will ensure testing of international standards of quality and safety for local as well as export consumption”, added Niranjan Nadkarni, Chief Executive Officer, TÜV SÜD South Asia.
