In addition to the existing 16 representative offices in Europe,America and Asia, in March 2008 the Hohenstein Institutes, based in Bönnigheim, opened up two more foreign branches in Guangzhou (China) and Aleppo (Syria).

The latter is also the official office for the international Oeko-Tex Standard 100 in the country. The Hohenstein Institutes offer a wide range of independent quality assessment, testing and certification services for the textile industry, and these have been used very successfully for years by European manufacturers, importers and retailers
when procuring products from countries such as China, India, Bangladesh and Turkey.

The services include, for example, certification under Oeko-Tex Standard 100, on-site inspections, checking for compliance with legal requirements in the target markets and analysis of other quality features such as workmanship, fit and comfort.

All the laboratory tests and certification processes are carried out exclusively at the headquarters of the Hohenstein Institutes in Bönnigheim (Germany), to ensure consistent quality standards for the customers. With 18 contact offices in
16 countries, the Hohenstein Institutes operate a network that is unique in the world, offering advice and support to companies in the textile supply chain.

The contact office in Guangzhou, formerly Canton, is located in one of the main centres of textile production in China. From there, Aaliya Chen's team looks after customers mainly in southern China and Hong Kong, supplementing the work of
the Hohenstein office in Shanghai.

The office in Aleppo, the centre of the long-established and booming Syrian textile industry, is headed by textile expert Dr. Nabil Oulabi and acts as a point of contact.
