In December of 2007, Qingdao Hi-Tech Industrial Park welcomed the sitting of SGS-CSTC Standards Technical Services Co., Ltd., Qingdao Branch — the branch of one world-leading company.

With the emerging of ring-Bohai economic circle, Shandong has undoubtedly become a leading player of the area with a strong development trend and growing combined economic strength. It stands the second place for GDP nationally. In the course of “Eleventh-Five-Year Plan”, peninsula cities headed by Qingdao, have greatly developed six pillar industries such as electric information/home appliance, machinery, petro-chemistry, food, textile/clothes and material industry. Qingdao is a big international port of China and important industrial base of ring-Bohai economic circle. It’s an international port and tourism city that enjoys developed modern manufacture and service industry. With reforming and opening up for the past 20 years as well as with the industrial reconstruction, Qingdao has built itself to be one of the largest manufacture and export of home appliance, electric information, beverage and garment in China. As more and more local companies have been involved into global play and market competition, inspection, verification, test and certification of goods has therefore become trump card for many companies to access to international market and be worldwide recognized. SGS, the global leader and innovator in the field of inspection and certification, has been always committed to providing Chinese companies with efficient and professional service so that they could evade trade risks, give full play in international market and improve competitiveness.
Based on SGS outstanding professional experience and service acclaim, SGS provides inspection and testing reports as well as certificates that represent an international level of standards by which multinational companies and traders can evaluate and select suppliers and business partners. According to Mr. Ke, manager of SGS Qingdao Branch, SGS Qingdao Branch has seen an employee growth from 120 in 2005 to 230 at present, enlarged existing food laboratory/agricultural product laboratory and built some labs for textile, petrochemical, mineral product and ornaments to meet market demands in the recent two years and to better serve local market. Not only does the localized technology service narrow inspection and test cycle, but also saves cost and facilitate customer. The settlement of SGS Qingdao to Hi-Tech Industrial Park is also based on business development and market demand. With sound industrial environment of the park, SGS will continue to give full support for companies in Shandong, provide efficient and professional service for local companies and those nearby to promote the growth of regional economy and industrial chain.
