Swiss fiber testing institute Testex completes 175 years


Focusing on a holistic approach, Testex offers complete sustainability solutions for the pandemic-hit industry. Founded in 1846, Testex is one of the oldest fiber-testing institutes in Switzerland. The organization recently completed 175 years of operations. Initially involved in determining the commercial weight of raw silk, Testex extended its testing to other fibers in the second half of the 20th century.

Testex joined the Oeko-Tex Association in 1993. The association and its founding institutes have spent almost three decades envisioning a sustainable textile industry and are pioneers in offering sustainability solutions. They offer a variety of modern testing equipment for both physical textile testing and analytical tests. Their most modern and up-to-date testing equipment and software allows laboratory staff to process their results competently at home and to control devices remotely.
