Intertek Hong Kong opens new testing centre
Apr '17
With consumers demanding high performance clothing, Intertek Hong Kong has opened its High-Performance Textile Testing Center at its Garment Centre premises. The facility is one of the best-equipped testing centres in the region to provide a comprehensive range of advanced technology performance testing for global brands, retailers and manufacturers.
Intertek is a leading total quality assurance provider to industries worldwide. It has a network of over 1,000 laboratories in more than 100 countries.
With a focus on delivering innovation and superior customer service, the Intertek Hong Kong test centre offers over 200 high-performance tests and unique testing technology including compression-sock testing and non-destructive down-fibre penetration resistance testing accredited by the Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme, the company says. 
Christina Law, chief executive, North East Asia, Intertek, said, "Today, our customers are keen on integrating high-performance features into their products, but are often faced with many challenges, including sourcing, and technical and compliance issues. Intertek Hong Kong has always been a pioneer in innovation and in launching this new state-of-the-art facility, it reinforces our leading position to provide total peace of mind to our customers through our total quality assurance solutions, and signifies a new chapter in our accomplishments."
Intertek founded the first commercial textile testing laboratory in Hong Kong in 1973. Over the years, it has developed a comprehensive range of testing methods for high performance textile testing, including for comfort (breathability, cooling), protection (thermal resistance, UV protection, water resistance) and easy care (oil release and water repellency). 
The exciting industry growth being forecast in the global sportswear retail market, expected to reach $185 billion by 2020, combined with the increased trend for athleisure, has led to the need for leading brands and manufacturers to deliver high performance functionality and increased performance testing to meet global standards.
