German training, testing and certification giant, TÜV SÜD has recently announced a promotional offer for chemical testing services for a set of parameters with a turnaround time (TAT) of eight hours for textile manufacturers in the city of Tiruppur in Tamil Nadu. With changing market dynamics across geographies, buyers, manufacturers and retailers often encounter challenges in ensuring consistent product quality and timely delivery of services. As a result, the need to facilitate quicker turnaround and maintain expected quality standards across global supply chains has increased significantly. To address these growing requirements, TÜV SÜD aims to ensure product and process quality with an assurance of meeting quality standards within an eight-hour window. This promotional offer is over and above the company’s regular services and includes both physical and analytical (regulatory) tests.
By doing so, TÜV SÜD has become the only company to provide such a service in Tiruppur, which is one of the biggest hubs for India’s textile and knitwear industry. The tests will be conducted for a select set of parameters and the results will be provided within eight hours, failing which TÜV SÜD will offer a money-back guarantee to its customers. This offer is available for a period of three months only, from the 1st of August to the 31st of October 2019.
