UL consolidates north and east India operations
UL, an independent, global safety science company, has consolidated the operations in the markets of north and east India with the inauguration of the Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Gurugram. The state-of-the-art laboratory reaffirms UL’s commitment to India’s manufacturing ecosystem with world-class testing, inspection and certification services.

This cutting-edge facility is UL’s second Centre of Excellence in India after Bengaluru and is in line with the company’s ambitious ‘In India, for India’ strategy to support domestic manufacturers’ need to meet regulatory compliance to access the domestic and global markets. To support the textile industries in the region, UL’s suite of services span analytical, physical, mechanical, electric and electronics testing. UL's Gurugram laboratory is also the first to be accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) to test under the new IS 9873 standards.

"UL's growth in India is a reflection of the changing policy landscape of the country, one which has seen definite progress in improving quality and safety standards to match those of mature economies around the world. Given the impact of 'Make in India', it is encouraging that the manufacturing communities are recognising the importance of establishing the safety and quality standards for the domestic market as well, rather than just focusing on the exports. With this Centre of Excellence, we aim to bring all the testing portfolios under one roof to offer easy access to our customers that will help reduce the turnaround time. It will also give us an opportunity to increase our footprint in the region expand further in newer areas of testing," said Suresh Sugavanam, vice president and managing director of UL, South Asia.

Replete with the latest and best in class equipment and talent, the Gurugram Centre of Excellence will offer customers in north and east India easy approach to UL’s renowned third-party end-to-end testing, inspection and certification services to accelerate time-to-market. Customers will also benefit from bespoke solutions on multiple product portfolios at one location. Greater impetus for manufacturing with economic recovery and structural reforms is boosting the prospects of sectors like textiles.
