SGS opens new textile laboratory in Hawassa, Ethiopia

SGS, a leading inspection, verification and certification company, has opened a new textile laboratory in Ethiopia. The new laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and can provide a wide range of testing services for apparel and textile products. It will strengthen the local industry’s ability to meet global standards.

“Ethiopia is becoming a hub for ready-made garment exports to Europe and the USA, clearly demonstrating an increase in demand for consumer product testing services in this region,” said Spencer Yeung, Vice President of SGS Global Softlines. “Our new state-of-the-art facility can test against an array of international safety, quality and compliance requirements. In addition, our program of future development and investment ensures that this lab will be the only fully-fledged textile testing laboratory in the region.”

Ethiopia’s long history in textiles began in 1939 when the first garment factory was established. In recent years the country’s textile and apparel industry has grown at an average at over 50 percent and more than 65 international textile investment projects have been licensed as foreign investors, during this period.

Located on the Hawassa Industrial Park, in Hawassa in the South Nations & Nationalities Regional State (SNNPRS) of Ethiopia, SGS’s new laboratory provides fast and efficient tailor-made testing services to local business, assuring compliance with the relevant international regulations and requirements.

In addition to testing services, quality inspection, compliance audits, factory assessment, and loading supervision make SGS in Ethiopia a one-stop service provider for the country’s textile industry.
