UL, a global safety science organisation, has officially opened its new Consumer and Retail Services (CRS) testing laboratory in Vietnam. The state-of-the-art laboratory expands capacity in the region to test several products including textiles, footwear, and accessories for compliance with a variety of safety and performance-related requirements.
 
UL's first consumer product testing facility in Ho Chi Minh City spans over 1,300 square metres, and provides capacity to deliver on Vietnam's global supply chain aspirations. UL will serve as an effective partner to local Vietnamese and multinational manufacturers by working along with Quatest III, a leading Vietnamese laboratory under the ministry of science and technology.
 
The new laboratory marks a milestone in UL's regional business expansion for testing, inspection and audit services. “We have seen an increased need in global consumer testing services and strategically, we want to be where our clients need us to be,” said Sajeev Jesudas, president of UL Consumer Business. “Vietnam is an essential country to be in as we expand our footprint for consumer testing services in the Asean region.”
 
“Vietnam's leadership has likewise committed to a path of reforms – administrative, regulatory, and trade – that provide a strong foundation for innovation and entrepreneurism to flourish,” said UL CEO and US-Asean Business Council chairman Keith Williams. “And UL is pleased that investments and partnerships such as this one will help accelerate the Vietnam manufacturing base's overall contributions to global trade and supply chains.”
 
The new laboratory opening follows the recent acquisition of US based Consumer Testing Laboratories (CTL) to further expand UL capacity for consumer testing services. Together with Quatest III, the collaboration enables UL to provide technical training that deepens Vietnam's scientific excellence and that builds out capacity in such soft skills areas as communications and problem-solving.
