Hohenstein Institutes opens second contact office in India

May '07
Bhaskar Bhaktavatchalu
Bönnigheim/Tirupur (hm) In order to meet the growing demand for independent textile quality testing in India, the Hohenstein Institutes have opened, in addition to their existing agency in Mumbai, a second contact office in Tirupur, a centre of textile production in Southern India.

As the second official agency of the International Oeko-Tex Association, the contact office is primarily responsible for the certification of textile products in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, but will also offer a wide range of standard materials and merchandise testing, as well as carrying out internationally recognised tests of performance and treatment processes.

Thanks to this new foothold in Tirupur, the Hohenstein Institutes are now able to be even more targeted and efficient in supporting European companies which have their products made by Indian manufacturers, with regard to their quality control and product optimisation.

In future, the shorter delivery times will mean that test and certification procedures for regionally based suppliers can be handled considerably faster. Shorter journey times will also allow for better customer care and face-to-face advice for companies at their own premises.

In order to ensure consistent quality standards, all laboratory testing will continue to be carried out in the long-established way by the laboratories at the main site in Bönnigheim.
