UL announced that it has moved its consumer products testing laboratory in Enfield, Conn., to a new state-of-the-art facility in the same town.
The new plant doubles the capacity and capabilities for quality and safety assurance testing, the company said in a news release.
“Our new Connecticut laboratory can now offer a greater volume of testing, more efficiently and across more product lines, while coordinating activities for U.S.-based customers using global UL consumer products labs for their testing needs,” said Roy Lamothe, Vice President and General Manager-Consumer Products, North America, in the statement.
The new facility houses advanced instrumentation and equipment for the testing of consumer hard goods inclusive of toys, small appliances, electrical equipment, and general merchandise, and soft goods inclusive of apparel, and fabrics and textiles. Additional laboratory capabilities allow UL to offer quality and safety assurance testing services in the U.S. for jewelry, playground equipment, and juvenile products.
