The new laboratory marks a milestone in UL’s regional business expansion for testing, inspection and audit services, and charts the course for additional collaboration in other significant areas to Vietnam such as furniture.
“We have seen an increased need in global consumer testing services and strategically, we want to be where our clients need us to be,” said Mr. Jesudas. “Vietnam is an essential country to be in as we expand our footprint for consumer testing services in the ASEAN region.”
