  • (1888PressRelease) September 15, 2017 - With the formal opening of its expanded testing facilities in Naucalpan, Mexico State, Mexico, on August 14, 2017, SGS has created the predominant facility for testing textiles and apparel in Central and South America.

    Opened by SGS EVP, Richard Shentu, SGS Mexico Managing Director, Hermann Saenger, and SGS Mexico Laboratory Manager, Lillian Peregrina, the specially invited dignitaries were later given guided tours of the new facilities, including explanations and demonstrations of the new capabilities.

    Mr Shentu stated, “SGS is committed to investing in world-class testing facilities and Mexico is an important center for SGS. With its access to North, Central and South American markets, manufacturers must be sure their testing laboratory is capable of performing the right physical and chemical tests for international and national standards.”

    Naucalpan’s geographical position make it ideally suited for textile manufacturers looking to take advantage of these markets. The facility is already approved by the US CPSC to perform ‘use and abuse’ and flammability tests, the site has developed its range of physical tests to include Martindale Pilling, colorfastness to burnt gas, ICI Pilling and the rain test. The expansion of the site means it can now perform the full-range of chemical tests on fabrics and apparel, against both US and Mexican standards.

    SGS is able to assist its textile customers with all their testing requirements, making Naucalpan the place for consumer textile testing in South and Central America. The laboratory offers efficient and accurate testing, competitive turnaround times, and service which exceeds the expectations of the customer.
