Bureau Veritas opens a new textile testing laboratory in China
Jul '08
Bureau Veritas has opened in March 2008 a new textile testing laboratory in Guangzhou City, China. It is set to meet the constantly growing demand from the textile industry for international standard checks. Its ideal location within the hub of Asia's textile industry provides a central position for international retailers and manufacturers alike.

International growth
The strategic location of the lab in Guangzhou enables substantial business growth for Bureau Veritas. "Well known retailers and major Brands have already employed our new facility in Guangzhou," says Bonnic Chung, the Consumer Products Services' business development director for Softlines and Footwear in Hong Kong and South China region. "Textile and apparel products with variety are always in great demand in both domestic and international markets. Our rapid growth alongside that of the industry is unquestionable."

Quality and quantity
Like every business, clients expect high quality service delivery by their service providers, and so do clients of Bureau Veritas. With the mission of becoming the global leader in testing, quality assurance and inspection services, our new lab reflects our continued commitment in providing enhanced quality testing and compliance services to our clients. "The Guangzhou laboratory is located in the Pearl River Delta region, the prominent manufacturing and sourcing hub in South China," adds Bonnic Chung. This setup allows shorter turnaround time between product testing and dispatch, providing greater efficiency in local communication and technical consulting. As a result, our clients enjoy lower costs, stay competitive and sustain their business growth in the long run.

A worldwide phenomenon
According to Bonnic Chung, the clothing market is experiencing such unprecedented growth that one could call it a worldwide phenomenon. "Rapid growth in clothing exports is driving demand for an internationally recognized commercial testing laboratory," she says. "Our state-of-the-art facility has over 200 technical professionals with expected 400-capacity by the end of the year, and the most up-to-date quality testing equipment to meet industry needs."

Location, location
"China is fast developing into a consumer society," says Bonnic Chung. "This creates a great demand in quality testing for both local and international markets." Western department stores and apparel brands keep opening their retail stores in Asia. The development of a local market, China in this case, will definitely provide an opportunity for our new service offerings and network expansion in the Asian region. For instance, there are already plans for a new laboratory in Vietnam.

Since its foundation in 1828, the Bureau Veritas Group has consistently built recognized expertise, helping clients comply with standards and regulations relating toQuality, Health & Safety, Environment and Social Responsibility.
