Intertek's tailored solutions enable retailers, brands and manufacturers of textile products, apparel and home textiles to ensure the safety, quality and performance of their products.
Intertek performs textile testing on items ranging from fabric samples to finished products, including activewear, apparel for children and adults (pajamas, sweaters, jeans, outerwear), fashion accessories (scarves, belts) and soft home furnishings (bedding, curtains, upholstery). We help ensure our customers meet consumer demand for high quality, minimize reputational risk, reduce environmental impacts and protect the interests of retailers, brands, textile manufacturers and consumer safety.
Intertek also supports textile and apparel customers through our textile auditing services to assess both manufacturing facilities and finished goods. Textile and apparel auditing is an integral step to verify manufacturing processes, compliance to standards and regulations and acceptable quality levels (AQL) in finished products.
We offer pre-shipment textile and apparel inspection services both pre- and post-production to help identify defects, ensure compliance with various standards and regulations and to verify that shipments contain all the appropriate and accurate paperwork. In addition, Intertek’s textile certification services help retailers demonstrate due diligence through supplier certification.
Intertek’s textile and apparel industry services helps retailers, brands and manufacturers uphold quality and safety while ensuring consumer confidence and brand loyalty.
In addition to Textiles & Apparel, Intertek helps clients build, maintain, and protect their brands through advisory services that go above and beyond regulatory compliance.
