Peabody, MA – On July 12th, 2017 TÜV SÜD America hosted a groundbreaking ceremony on the new 4-acre property located at 141 14th ST NW, New Brighton, MN. Mayor Val Johnson, TÜV SÜD staff and representatives of Ryan Companies construction proudly spoke of the new 36,000 sq. foot testing facility planned to open in spring of 2018.
All speakers agreed that the new facility will be an attractive and a beneficial gain for the residents of New Brighton, where the City Council unanimously voted for the approval of the new site. The lab will feature product safety, EMC, wireless, and environmental testing for a wide variety of electronic products touching all manufacturing industries.
“Establishing this state-of-the art testing facility is part of our goal to grow our testing solutions footprint,” stated Fabian Schober, CFO TÜV SÜD America. “We certainly look forward to being a contributor to economic growth and job opportunities for the local community.”
The new facility will be closely located to the new Lion’s park playground and the City of New Brighton is working to raise funds to build a special playground area which is safe and wheelchair accessible. TÜV SÜD graciously presented a significant donation to help make that possible.
The growth of TÜV SÜD America has been continual and consistent, started by a single employee in 1987 and now retaining more than 1,400 employees at over three dozen locations across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Brazil.
