Located in Shatin, the new office and laboratory facility occupies 5,129 square feet. The new location provides qualified testing and certification services for Hong Kong’s manufacturers locally, helping them reduce costs, time-to-market and improve product quality. With its new local laboratory in place, CSA’s long-term expertise in this arena will contribute to the healthy development of the industry while helping to strengthen the Hong Kong brand of quality worldwide.
Greater China remains a key priority market for CSA. One of the company’s key business strategies includes accelerating investments in LED lighting, energy efficiency verification (EEV), solar and photovoltaic, and expanding its core services and businesses in the region.
