SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, announced today the opening of a new detergents and household cleaners laboratory at its Fairfield, NJ location to serve the product safety and performance testing needs of the Household Care and Detergents industry. This additional capability builds on existing analytical, packaging and sustainability assessment services, rendering a full suite of solutions in North America.

“SGS has a strong background in detergents testing throughout its global network.  With this addition we are bringing a seamless global supply chain solution to the North American market” said Nicolas Bacheré, Managing Director of SGS North America Inc. Consumer Testing Services division. “We are now able to offer, chemical, microbiological and physical testing under one roof as well as factory audits, sustainability assessments and document reviews to meet the industry’s evolving global needs.”

Today’s consumer is increasingly gravitating towards products that are environmentally friendly and contain natural ingredients, consistent with a preference for high efficiency appliances.  There is also a growing demand for convenience features such as pre-portioned pods for dishwasher and laundry detergents.  These factors are creating new challenges for manufacturers and suppliers of homecare products to ensure that quality is not being compromised in the quest for innovation.

The new lab specializes in the testing of laundry and dishwashing detergents, glass and hard surface cleansers for kitchen, bath and household applications. SGS Labs provide the North American market with faster turnaround times, testing and benchmarking studies at various stages of product development.  This helps the household care and detergent products industry bring innovative, safe and compliant products to markets worldwide.

In celebration of the new lab opening SGS is offering personalized tours of the new laboratory, tailored to address the specific needs and challenges that our clients are facing.
