TUV Rheinland India, a subsidiary of the TUV Rheinland Group, has expanded its footprint in the country with a new €2.5 million facility in Bangalore. The expansion will offer customers a complete solution that will reduce turnaround time and accelerate time-to-market. The new facility features the latest technologies and innovations, including solar panels.

TUV Rheinland’s massive 10 metre anechoic EMC testing lab, the first of its kind in India, will remain at its existing location in strategic proximity to the new facility. Each lab is equipped with the latest technology to address the needs of customers. The laboratories include the photovoltaic lab, material testing lab, electrical safety lab, medical lab, battery testing lab and the Softlines testing lab. It is also home to the wireless IoT testing laboratory, which conducts radiated and conducted signal measurements as well as wireless alliance certification.

The new facility is designed to be compliant with a variety of national and international accreditations, including the IECEE CB scheme. Key capabilities include X-ray equipment testing, vibration and shock test, wet test and energy efficiency testing. There is a calibration lab for electromagnetic interference and electromagnetic compatibility testing and measuring equipment. Additionally, TUV Rheinland has specialised set-ups for testing medical equipment such as ECGs, defibrillators, baby warmers, incubators, ultrasound scanners and photo therapy devices.

It will accommodate products ranging from medical to photovoltaic, IT and audio-video products, home automation, home & kitchen appliances, batteries for IT products, wireless devices and automotive components.

"Since its inception, TUV Rheinland has been on a continuous growth path with a view to providing the latest and best global practices to our customers in India. The setting up of this extensive, brand new facility in Bangalore is more than a milestone for our company; it is yet another initiative designed to meet the growing demands of our customers," said Dr Michael Fubi, CEO, TUV Rheinland Group.

"For example, if an electronic component manufacturer walks into our office, we can offer them a complete solution for their business. That means catering to their need for ISO certification, as well as providing comprehensive support on product certification or material testing. We also offer training solutions – both managerial and technical – for employees. And, although we are co-locating our laboratories in a single tailor-made building – a first for any international TIC organisation operating in India – there is still significant spare capacity for future expansion," explained Fubi.

"TUV Rheinland’s services have created a lot of demand in India, where the market is constantly looking for safer products. Quality is another key element that consumers consider when looking for value-for-money when it comes to products or services," said Thomas Fuhrmann, managing director, TUV Rheinland India.

"Major markets like the US and the European Union have stringent mandatory regulations when it comes to the quality and safety of products. The Indian government is also moving in the right direction by initiating mandatory BIS regulation for local manufacturers. And, with our new facility, TUV Rheinland will be there to help every step of the way," concluded Fuhrmann. (RR)
