HQTS Quality Control

HQTS opens New ISO 17025 Footwear Testing Laboratory in Vietnam

The recently acquired HQTS Testing Laboratory in Vietnam with ISO 17025 certification. This is a huge achievement for HQTS and will continue to increase its global exposure.

The HQTS Vietnam Laboratory has advanced testing equipment and fantastic facilities, which can provide all kinds of testing services across Southeast Asia including footwear, clothing and many other products. Early this year, the HQTS Vietnam Footwear Laboratory passed the vital checks that were completed by Vietnam AOSC, and the laboratory obtained the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation on April 19, 2021.

In January 2021, the HQTS Ningbo Laboratory also gained an accreditation. Both of these accreditations are huge achievements for HQTS and will help to grow the business, ensuring it continues to have strong abilities and will meet the needs of its clients. These accreditations will help to expand the company’s service and capacities around the world.

As many already know, with the continuous integration of world economy and trade, Southeast Asia has increasingly become an indispensable part of the supply chain process, especially in certain industries such as textiles, footwear and clothing.

The HQTS Vietnam Footwear Laboratory is an important strategic step for HQTS to continue to build a global testing service network. It is also an important step for HQTS to enter the Southeast Asia testing market, as this will not only increase its  capacity within the testing field, but it will also help to enhance the company’s sustainable development abilities and core business competitiveness.

This is a very proud moment for HQTS and it will expand the capabilities of the company across Asia, ensuring it delivers top-quality inspections, audits, evaluations, testing, production control and management services every time. Giving clients peace of mind and confidence that products will meet exact quality standards and requirements, HQTS will continue to align with its customers’ expectations.

As HQTS becomes a wider global company, the company needs to remain true to its original aspirations and ensure its mission statement is never forgotten. Therefore, HQTS will continue to work alongside other industries and be true to its founding value of the company whilst still remaining responsible to any challenges it may face. HQTS is a prosperous, thriving and efficient company and will be for many more years to come.
