SGS has recently established a textile testing laboratory at Madagascar, one of the important textile & garment manufacturing sites in the region.

The new 160 m2 state-of–the-art facility is staffed with highly experienced technical personnel offering physical testing and services for a board range of apparel and textile products.

The new capacity and testing capabilities of the SGS Madagascar laboratory serves the ever expanding textile industry in Madagascar by providing valuable and rapid testing services to the local textile and garment manufacturers wishing to comply with international regulations and requirements.

In addition to testing, quality inspection, compliance audits, factory assessment and loading supervision make SGS Madagascar a one-stop service provider for the textile industry in the country.

Pascal Bezençon, Managing Director of SGS Madagascar remarked, “With the establishment of the textile laboratory, the Madagascar textile industry benefits from the increase support from the local technical expertise, shortening of testing turnaround time and reduction of cost.

"This will thus increase the confidence of the international buyers. Furthermore in line with SGS direction, we will further serve the textile industry by expanding our testing capability in the near future.”

The addition of this new laboratory and facility will add new capabilities and capacities to the ever expanding SGS Indian Ocean/Africa network, as well as increasing the geographical footprint of the Global Softlines network.
