Quality through Physical and Chemical Testing on Textile and Fashion Leather Clothing 

CTC's international teams include highly qualified employees who are experts in the quality assessment of all types of clothing and textiles. Through its strategic location as close as possible to sourcing areas, the CTC laboratory network carries out tests and quality controls.

The Global Quality Approach allows any company -and particularly those sourcing abroad- to guarantee the safety, performance and conformity of their products according to customized specifications as well as national and international standards and references.

On the other hand, without a Global Quality program, the company is exposed to risks that could affect its image, its business networks, its supply and distribution systems, its level of activity and even its sustainability.

CTC is the international reference in the development of Global Quality programs through a complete range of services: audits, inspections, consulting, training and laboratory tests.
