Laboratory analysis of luxury goods

Your needs : to design luxury products using high quality materials.

Major brands, manufacturers and subcontractors in the luxury industry are all subject to common priorities and requirements : the pursuit of zero defects, higher production speed, better assembly reliability and the use of high-quality, durable materials.

In order to meet these challenges specific to the luxury industry, inspection of the materials used is an essential step. Several factors can affect the life cycle of a luxury product :

  • Defective raw materials
  • Non-conforming raw materials
  • Appearance of defects in the final product
  • Problems in the suppliers' production process leading to delays in delivery
  • etc.
