TÜV Rheinland sets up office in Ahmedabad
TÜV Rheinland India, the Indian subsidiary of the German-based TÜV Rheinland Group, a worldwide leader in testing, training, inspection, consulting and certification, announced that it has set up office in Ahmedabad. This will be the company’s second office in Gujarat (the first being in Vadodara) through which the company looks to tap major opportunities in the garment and metro rail sector. Announcing this, Enrico Ruhle, CEO & Managing Director, TÜV Rheinland South Asia, said, “Ahmedabad and the nearby areas have a major concentration of garment manufacturers and exporters as well as a major gems and jewellery cluster. The Softlines business of TÜV Rheinland India, which primarily helps manufacturers and exporters of garments, home soft furnishings and jewellery to maintain their brand positioning by testing and certifying their product for quality, safety and performance requirements, will cater to this segment.” In India, TÜV Rheinland is spread over 100 locations and has 12 state-of-the-art laboratories and testing facilities. “TÜV Rheinland India is doing well with a 40 per cent growth year-on-year. Though the company has six business streams globally, in India, only five of them are active, i.e. Industrial Services, Products, Mobility, Systems and Training and Consulting. All five business streams have performed consistently in the last few years and will perform even better in future,” concluded Ruhle.
