SGS Expands Textile Testing Facility in Tunisia
SGS has expanded its testing facilities in Tunis, Tunisia, providing convenient services to the country's major textile production region.
Conveniently located in the major industrial zone, SGS's facilities in Tunisia not only serve domestic clients' needs, but also provide international services for clients from across the globe. Opened in 2009, the textile laboratory is ISO 17025 accredited and CPSC approved. In 2018, SGS has expanded the facility significantly, increasing capabilities for both physical and chemical testing, which allows a much larger testing volume in the lab to meet customer demand in the textile sector.
Tunisia is an important garment exporter to Europe, especially to France and Italy. With more than EUR 3 billion export value, Tunisia is one of top ten suppliers to the EU's garment industry. The country also exports textile products to the USA and Asia.1
With its proximity to the EU, Tunisia's textile industry enjoys a premium position for fast fashion and has been recognized for its strong knowledge in denim, underwear, knitwear, workwear and swimwear production.
With this expansion, SGS in Tunisia can provide better and faster services for manufacturers and brands needing to comply with international regulations and access global markets.
