outside expertise. Now, with the SGS textile lab, Morocco is providing services to national and international textile stakeholders. Also, in line
with SGS direction, the company is expanding its capability in the near future to better serve the textile industry in Morocco."
The addition of this new laboratory and facility in the SGS network will increase capabilities and capacities to the ever expanding SGS CTS Morocco
