In early 2016 TÜV SÜD acquired the assets of two existing test laboratories in central Florida, Walshire Labs and Product Safety Engineering (PSE). An existing TÜV SÜD safety lab was then relocated to Tampa, just north of the airport, and combined with the staff and assets from Walshire and PSE. Companies in central Florida and beyond now benefit from a single TÜV SÜD location capable of turn-key product compliance solutions.
“We are very proud of our state-of-the-art facility,” explained Doug Hughes, TÜV SÜD Director of Sales and Development, “and look forward to continuing to serve innovative technological firms in the Southeast.”
TÜV SÜD supports product developers from initial prototype stages to commercial launch, providing safety, emissions, immunity and radio testing for Global compliance. From testing to certification the group will offer regulatory solutions for every stage of product rollout.
“Industry leadership and customer service - TÜV SÜD sets the bar high,” explained Pete Walsh, Service Line Manager, Tampa, “and our staff is excited and well equipped to be an example of excellence within the organization and a valued partner to customers in the Southeast.”
Working with the staff in Tampa, customers can attain product safety certifications for the U.S., Canada, and Europe, FCC compliance for unintentional and intentional (wireless) devices, EMC tests in support of CE marking for Europe, CB Scheme product safety certification for international approvals and assistance gaining the necessary Global Market Access approvals to ship products worldwide.
