Hardlines Testing

Quality, compliance, pricing, and speed-to-market efficiency are just a few of the main components of managing a successful supply chain. Today, retailers are faced with far more than the age-old dilemma of whether to accept a nominal amount of manufacturing defects. Complex local, state, and federal regulations are challenging manufacturers to produce safer, higher quality, and more environmentally friendly products than ever before. In addition, addressing US standards alone is not sufficient in today’s global marketplace. New international standards and regulations are increasingly appearing without any global harmonization in sight. While the issue of mastering these complexities has become a major challenge for retailers, organizations such as Modern Testing Services (MTS) thrive in this fast-paced environment.

Our Hardline services include, but are not limited to, design evaluation, risk analysis, product safety testing, defect evaluations, and consultation. A partnership with MTS promotes quality, decreases customer complaints, and can greatly reduce the chances of a product recall from a variety of different governmental agencies, at home and abroad. Under our expertise, you can be confident that your products are being evaluated by some of the top industry professionals worldwide.
