Mar '14
TÜV Rheinland India, the Indian subsidiary of the German based TÜV Rheinland Group, a worldwide leader in Testing, Training, Inspection, Consulting and Certification, announced that it has set up office in Ahmedabad. This will be the company’s second office in Gujarat(the first being Vadodara).Gujarat is a fast growing and industrially developed state in India thus providing ample opportunity for TÜV Rheinland India to provide its services across industries, especially in the garment and metro rail sector.
Announcing this, Mr Enrico Ruhle, CEO & Managing Director, TÜV Rheinland South Asia, said “Ahmedabad and the nearby areas have a major concentration of garment manufacturers and exporters. It also has a major Gems and Jewellery cluster. The Softlines business of TÜV Rheinland India, which primarily helps the manufacturers and exporters of Garments, Home Soft Furnishings and Jewellery to maintain their brand positioning by testing and certifying their product for quality, safety & performance requirements, will cater to this segment.”
“Infrastructure sector is also growing rapidly in Ahmedabad. The government has proposed a mass-transit rail system, MEGA. The project aims to build a Metro cum Regional Rail Transit System, which would connect the cities of Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad. 
“The central government has allotted US$ 2 million to MEGA for FY 2013-14. TÜV Rheinland, with its vast global experience in the railway segment, will tap this market in metro rail, by offering Independent Safety Assessment Inspection, Auditing, Certification, Training, Consultancy, RAMS and Testing services for products like electrical products, signalling & telecom etc.” added Mr Ruhle.
In India, TÜV Rheinland spread over 100 locations and has 12 state-of-the-art Laboratories and testing facilities. TÜV Rheinland India currently employs over1000 highly skilled professionals. As an independent body, TÜV Rheinland inspects, tests, certifies products, people, installations, processes and management systems for international standards. 
“TÜV Rheinland India is doing well with a 40% growth year on year. Though, the company has 6 business streams globally but in India only 5 are active (Industrial Services, Products, Mobility, Systems and Training & Consulting). All 5 business streams have performed consistently in the last few years and it will perform even better in future.” concluded Mr Ruhle.
