SGS Expands Certification Services

by swisscham in Engineering, Manufacturing

SGS SA, the world’s largest third-party testing, inspection and certification company by revenue, is expanding its services in consumer goods and manufacturing in China, a company official said. The Switzerland-based company will add more than 1,000 employees and set up another 10 laboratories in different locations throughout China this year, including a life sciences laboratory in Shanghai, a rail transportation lab in Chengdu and one for medical devices in Guangzhou. Shentu Xianzhong, managing director of SGS China, said China’s closer integration in the world economy has pushed its manufacturers to meet domestic and foreign quality standards. SGS entered the China market in 1991, soon after the nation started to develop its certification and verification industry. Those activities didn’t become vital to the Chinese market until after the country became a member of the World Trade Organization in 2001.
