TÜV SÜD, a globally valued German safety and quality expert, has expanded its textile testing laboratory in Tiruppur. With this, the laboratory, distinguished for its physical testing and technical solutions, will now also give chemical testing services for all kinds of textile businesses in Tiruppur and neighbouring regions including Karur, Salem and Erode.

The holistic capabilities of the laboratory will cater to manufacturers and exporters carving a niche for Indian knitwear products in global and domestic markets.

The facility is fully equipped to provide comprehensive textile, apparel and home furnishing testing services. For businesses that partner with TÜV SÜD, the benefits are manifold. TÜV SÜD will be able to assist manufacturers in improving production processes, optimising costs and reducing risks and defects by ensuring their products' compliance with the guidelines.

Manufacturers can avail complete guidance on Restricted Substance List (RSL) and Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) and other similar safety regulations. The new chemical testing laboratory will be equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, including UPLC-MS, GC-MS, UV-VIS spectroscopy, FTIR and ICP-OES. These instruments will be essential in testing for key parameters such as pH levels as well as banned amines, phthalates, formaldehyde and heavy metals.

To reduce product rejections in global markets and identify production threats at grassroots level, TÜV SÜD is able to deliver failure and root cause analysis that will support manufacturers in minimising risks at preliminary stages. The expanded facility offers all testing services available under one roof, for which extra floor space was added to the existing laboratory in Velampalayam, Tiruppur.

Announcing the expansion, Niranjan Nadkarni, CEO of South and South-East Asia, Middle East and Africa Region said, "Tiruppur is one of the biggest hubs for India's textile and knitwear industry. The sector is highly promising with respect to its contribution to the country's GDP and the government is also taking decisive steps towards unlocking its full potential. Our aim is to understand the pulse of the sector and respond to its business needs in real time. Keeping that in mind, we have strategically invested in building a facility close to the manufacturing hub and have augmented our range of testing services aligned with manufacturers' evolving business needs.”

“Globally, we have a network of laboratories and multidisciplinary experts collaborating with exporters and importers to help minimise production risks and mitigate economic losses. Owing to our global heritage of superior services and expertise, we are equipped to support clusters like Tiruppur and its neighbouring regions with the required technical know-how to meet rapidly changing requirements," Nadkarni said.

With its wide network of labs and experts across key markets including South Asia, European Union, ASEAN, the US and UK, TÜV SÜD has in-depth familiarity with compliance in exporting and importing nations. Across the globe, TÜV SÜD works with leading international brands of repute to help them focus on quality and consistency. The company's state-of-the-art consumer testing laboratories ensure that manufacturers, exporters and importers can smoothly adapt to ever-evolving regulations and help to minimise economic losses in trade.
