Sample Collection Centre at Tirupur

For the benefit of exporters, processors and allied industries, SITRA opened in May 2005, a sample collection centre at Tirupur. Instead of sending samples by courier or bringing samples in-person to SITRA, Coimbatore, customers in the region can drop their samples at the collection centre in Tirupur. The test results are sent to customers directly by email/fax and courier. The process reduces “turn around time”, enabling quick receipt of test reports.
