DyStar Sets Up New Texanlab To Drive Sustainability In Textile Industry

SINGAPORE  — May 5, 2017 — On April 21, 2017, the Texanlab Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. opened its third state of the art and technologically advanced laboratory at Tirupur (Tamilnadu), a town in South India famous for knitwear exports and known as Manchester of India. It is also a popular destination chosen by European and American retailers for buying various knitted products like t-shirts.

With a footprint of 6,200 square feet in the center of Tirupur city, this new laboratory is equipped with the very latest equipment for testing of textiles in terms of all physical and color fastness parameters. It’s worth mentioning that one-third of the lab uses natural daylight and fresh air to reduce electricity usage – a step towards sustainability, which fully aligns with the company’s commitment to sustainable development.

This textile laboratory would be the first of its kind to serve the export industry with more than “just testing” services – it will also provide end-to-end solutions in the supply chain, from raw materials to final products.

As a service division of the DyStar Group dedicated to textile and ecology testing services for 30 years, the Texanlab now has testing laboratories in Mumbai, Gurgaon, and Tirupur in India, as well as sales offices in Asia, Europe, and America. The Group plans to set up a new laboratory soon in Bangladesh. Texanlab closely works with global brands and retailers and has tested more than

350,000 RSL parameters since its inception. With the new lab, the whole team will undoubtedly support the industry to further reduce harmful chemicals and create a greener and cleaner environment.
