To augment product innovation, process and production management across the textile value chain from fibre to garment, German testing and certification firm TÜV SÜD has announced entry into the advisory domain for textile manufacturing in India. A multi-pronged approach towards quality, safety and efficiency in textile manufacturing will be followed by the newly launched services. A team of global experts will help deliver customised solutions for Indian textile manufacturers. The team will be a part of TUV SUD's Research and Development Advisory Services.
Businesses will be guided by the Production Advisory Services to develop new and innovative products and also help them enhance their existing plants and dry and wet processing houses. This complete service solution will also include Lab Advisory Services and Training Services to help business in the back-end by aiding them to set up quality control labs and also deliver training programmes respectively.
Suresh Kumar, Senior Vice President, Consumer Product Services, TÜV SÜD South Asia explains the size of the Indian textile industry is over $95 billion, which includes $42 billion in exports and is expected to grow to $221 billion by 2021. Thus, it is important to have a robust infrastructure that improves the acceptance of Indian textiles across the globe to achieve this target.
Kumar adds their services will provide end-to-end consultancy in product innovation and development while mitigating any risks that could hamper completion of the process. He further stated that since the industry is fragmented, they can support with an efficient single point control that helps product development plan to be on schedule, control costs, improve quality and enhance user satisfaction.
