Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS) has signed a new partnership with Quality Lab, a Portuguese laboratory specialising in analytical, physical testing and fibre analysis for the textile industry.

“This partnership reinforces the footprint of BVCPS in Portugal where textiles is one of the oldest industries in the country, generating 9 per cent of Portuguese exports,” a BVCPS press release revealed.

According to BVCPS, employing in excess of 100,000 people, the Portuguese textile industry continues to develop and is focusing its efforts on innovative and quality products.

Founded in 2009 and located in Trofa, Quality Lab has established a strong technical reputation in the textiles industry.

Equipped with modern testing equipment, with a team of highly skilled employees, the laboratory can perform physical and chemical testing to assess the safety, compliance and quality of apparel and textile products.

“Quality Lab is accredited by the Portuguese Institute for Accreditation (IPAC),” the press release added.

Mark Agius, vice president, EMEA at BVCPS said, "I am delighted to welcome Quality Lab as a business partner, enabling Bureau Veritas to better serve our softlines clients in Southern Europe.”

“Portugal is a region where many of our retail clients are sourcing from and it is a logical step for us to develop our network wherever our clients need," he too added.

Founded in 1828, BVCPS has more than 66,500 employees in 1,400 offices and laboratories located in 140 countries. (AR)
