Textile, apparel testing lab in Battaramulla

Intertek, a leading global provider of quality and safety solutions for a range of industries around the world, plans to open a new textile and apparel testing laboratory in Battaramulla.

The new lab will serve retailers, brands and manufacturers of adult apparel, children's apparel, fashion accessories and household textiles.

"Because Intertek has long-standing relationships with many of the leading global brands and retailers who source and manufacture apparel in Sri Lanka, the location is ideal for expansion of our textile and apparel testing capabilities," the company said in a release. "The apparel industry in Sri Lanka is a major contributor to the country's economy, representing nearly 40 percent of total exports," said Global Business Line Leader for Softlines at Intertek, Calvin Yam. Intertek services ensure that the products of fabric, apparel, fashion accessory, home textile and footwear retailers, brands and manufacturers meet safety, regulatory, quality and performance standards.

The new lab would bring the total number of textile and apparel testing labs in the company's global network to 47 throughout the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The local lab would have state-of-the-art equipment for physical and analytical testing, enabling Intertek to offer a range of services.
