Luxury goods industry

The luxury goods industry is made up of about forty sectors covering in particular jewellery, silverware, clothing, tableware, perfume, shoes, and other sectors such as the production of wines and spirits. As a manufacturer, subcontractor or artisan in one of these sectors, your priorities are: the quest for zero defects, guaranteeing the reliability of your manufacturing and assembly methods and processes, the search for the most noble and durable alloys and materials, ensuring they are biocompatible, and even the identification of substitute materials. You are therefore looking to cooperate with a reliable, independent laboratory capable of offering high technical value added and guaranteeing total confidentiality.
