Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS), an inspection and certification organization, announced Wednesday that its Turkish testing laboratory had moved to a larger, more environmentally-friendly location in the heart of Istanbul’s textile district.
Measuring 4,500 square meters (roughly 48,000 square feet), the new facility is less than four miles from Ataturk, the city’s main international airport and a primary hub for Turkish Airlines, and BVCPS said the bigger building will enable the business to pursue its growth ambition.
Two hundred employees have now been relocated to the premises, which have been designed to reduce lighting and electricity consumption, ultimately saving energy resources.
“Our new office will be a living proof of dedication to our three corporate absolutes, which are ethics, safety and financial control,” Fatih Cakir, country manager at BVCPS Turkey, said in a statement. “Our new building has been smartly designed to maximize operational efficiencies and to be more protective of the environment. I am truly excited to know that this move will provide us with the additional space required to further expand our scope of services and the ability to serve our customers at the highest levels.”
BVCPS Turkey has been serving the needs of manufacturers, retailers and exporters of textiles, footwear and hard goods since 2003, providing a large scope of physical and analytical testing and expertise under one roof.
