UL, a global safety science company, recently announced the launch of their consumer and retail services testing laboratory in Bangalore, the second such facility by the company in India.

The new laboratory will cater to the regulatory and voluntary testing needs of consumer products like textiles and apparel for the Southern and Western regions of India, which are a prominent base for textile and leather industries.

The Bangalore laboratory comprises separate units for analytical, colour fastness, and physical testing as per global standards, with latest cutting edge equipment.

Sarbajeet Mukherjee, general manager - consumer and retail services, UL South Asia said,   “UL's quality and time bound service has resulted in our customers requesting us to expand our services in Southern India. While catering to our existing and new clients, the laboratory will also help our clients to optimise their product performance with UL expert solutions that mitigate potential risks and help protect their brands.”

Suresh Sugavanam, vice president and managing director, UL South Asia, said, “The Indian market is fuelled with growing impetus for quality assurance, coupled with the increasing awareness for the need for consumer and product safety. Our new laboratory is an extension of the company's commitment to be 'In India for India' while striving towards a safer living environment for all.” (HO)
