Intertek has formed a strategic partnership with Bangladesh Export Import Company Limited (BEXIMCO). Under it, Intertek will have exclusive rights to operate & manage the new PPE quality assurance laboratory of BEXIMCO in planning and set-up, providing guidelines on equipment, managing daily operations, provision of technical experts, delivering accreditations.

The operational lab will cater to all customers across the PPE ecosystem in Bangladesh including the Government of Bangladesh (Ministry of Health), WHO, DGDA (Directorate General of Drug Administration) and private manufacturers alike.

The spread of COVID-19 has seen the demand for PPE rise significantly and as disease continues to spread throughout the globe, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has described, the chronic, global shortage of PPE as “one of the most urgent threats to our collective ability to save lives.” South Asia and Bangladesh are now emerging as the new hotspot for PPE manufacturing and have ramped up the manufacturing of worldclass, large-scale PPE.

BEXIMCO is a diversified private sector group in Bangladesh across a wide range of industries, and one of South Asia's largest vertically integrated textile and garment companies.

BEXIMCO, based in Dhaka, has recently set up a new PPE Industrial Park, close to their company headquarters, having exported 6.5 million PPE gowns to the US, with a vision to become one of the major players in PPE manufacturing globally. For more than 15 years, Intertek has served as a trusted partner to BEXIMCO, providing Assurance, Testing, Inspection and Certification (ATIC) services for their textiles and apparels business.

Intertek’s extensive expertise in providing independent Total Quality Assurance solutions in this sector, across a global network of labs, will provide BEXIMCO with complete end-to-end solutions to manufacture, test and distribute PPE equipment around the globe.
