The new Intertek facility occupies more than 6,000 square feet and is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment combined with highly qualified engineers and chemists to provide reliable quality and safety solutions.
The new lab performs textile testing for dimensional stability, colorfastness and seam strength, among others. The lab also supports full testing capabilities to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) requirements and restricted substances regulations.
The strategic location is a major advantage to Intertek’s customers as it helps to not only reduce travel time for samples to be tested but also significantly improves the turnaround time of producing testing reports as a whole.
Thanh Nam Nguyen, General Manager for Softlines, Hardlines and Toys business lines, said, “The addition of the Hanoi facility aligns with Intertek’s continuous effort to provide a local presence for our customers, wherever their business operations are located. This provides a distinct competitive advantage in an industry where getting safe and high-quality products to market is imperative for success.”
The Hanoi apparel testing laboratory is the most recent addition to Intertek’s global network of 45 textile and footwear laboratories that serve fabric, apparel, fashion accessory, home textile and footwear retailers, brands and manufacturers.
In addition to testing, Intertek offers the following services for textile, footwear and apparel customers: chemical management, inspections, certification, auditing, safety and compliance training, outsourcing and advisory, quality assurance and risk management.
