SGS New Consumer Testing Lab Opens in Casablanca, Morocco
SGS has recently established a consumer testing laboratory in Casablanca, the largest garment manufacturing city in Morocco. The newly ISO 17025 accredited laboratory is equipped with advanced and cutting edge facilities, including GS-MS, HPLC-MS suites, to provide quality testing services for companies complying with international standards and regulations.
The presence of the SGS laboratory in Morocco will contribute and strengthen the local apparel industry’s ability to meet buyers’ expectations through shortening of production lead time. Currently, SGS Morocco is the first laboratory in the country offering both physical and chemical testing for a comprehensive range of textile products. In addition to testing, SGS Morocco offers audit and inspection services, making us a one-stop testing service provider in Morocco. As a result, SGS Morocco will play a vital role in further developing businesses for nearby consumer countries such as France, Spain, UK, Germany, etc.
Philippe Joyeux, Managing Director of SGS Morocco said, “The SGS lab will not only bring additional confidence to international buyers, it will also allow Moroccan manufacturers to reduce the time constraints linked with the testing process. Until the end of last year, Morocco was dependant on outside expertise. Now, with the SGS textile lab, Morocco is providing services to national and international textile stakeholders. Also, in line with SGS direction, we are expanding our capability in the near future to better serve the textile industry in Morocco.”
The addition of this new laboratory and facility in the SGS network will increase capabilities and capacities to the ever expanding SGS CTS Morocco services as well as SGS presence in the North Africa region.
