Hohenstein, a testing service provider and research partner in the textile industry, has opened a new textile testing laboratory in Gurugram. The new facility will be able to offer tailor-made services in one of the world’s textile hotspots. During tours, visitors can get an impression of the local capabilities of the textile market.
With around 50 employees on a total of around 3,000 square metres, Hohenstein will offer textile manufacturers, brand suppliers and retailers a variety of textile technology and chemical tests such as performance testing, restricted substance list (RSL) compliance, harmful substance control, quality control and inspections, and expert report services, said a media release by the company.
In July 2018, the company opened a textile testing laboratory with a comprehensive service portfolio in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
“For more than 70 years, Hohenstein has stood for textile expertise along the entire textile production chain. With the new laboratories in India and Bangladesh, we’re growing a network of expertise from which everyone will benefit,” said Prof Dr. Stefan Mecheels, who is managing the third generation of the family run business of Hohenstein. “Good, consistent cooperation is very important for Hohenstein: close exchange between the laboratories in Germany, Hong Kong, Bangladesh and India ensures more customer proximity and faster order processing.”
“One thing is certain, wherever the examinations, tests and analyses take place, all our laboratories work with the most modern equipment according to the same standards,” added Mecheels.
