South America has historically been a key player in the textile industry, which is currently coping with regulatory changes and heightened restrictions worldwide. Intertek, a global leading provider of quality and safety solutions for a wide range of industries, has given Columbian textile manufacturers local accessibility since the opening of its textile lab in 2007. The Medellin lab has served businesses throughout South America, and now proudly touts an ISO 17025 accreditation.

ISO 17025 is a standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), developed specifically to give guidance to laboratories on both quality management and technical requirements for recognized excellence in operations. The requirements promote continual improvement of management systems, allowing for greater focus on customer satisfaction. The accreditation of the Medellin lab demonstrates Intertek's commitment to delivering services of the highest quality to its customers according to recognized practices and procedures.

With knowledgeable textile experts and innovative equipment, Intertek's Medellin facility is strategically placed to support South American apparel and textile clients along with international brands accessing the South American market. The lab currently offers a variety of testing services for fibers, fabrics, garments and sundries according to local and global standards. Specific services offered include a multitude of physical, chemical, colorfastness and flammability testing capabilities in accordance with international regulatory standards (AATCC, ASTM, ISO, JIS, NTC, and others), as well as client-specific methods.

“The international textile and apparel market is growing rapidly, and South America is a key to this process. The local support and global capabilities that our newly accredited Medellin textile lab provides will be a cost-effective way for textile manufacturers doing business in South America to stay ahead of the curve and adapt to growth. We celebrate this promising achievement while looking forward to an enhanced ability to support the success of our South American clients,” said Rudy Semrau, General Manager for Intertek Guatemala.
