     Malaysian laboratory testing services company the Chemical Laboratory Group (Chemlab), announced today (December 5) that it has recently received its accreditation under the Hong Kong Laboratory Accreditation Scheme in Hong Kong, paving the way for its future expansion into the Mainland China market and the rest of the region.

     To start with, Chemlab will offer food testing to help clients achieve high quality in food safety and hygiene. The next step will see the company expand into a diverse range of testing fields including environmental, industrial and occupational monitoring and testing services, plus other compliance testing as business develops.

     The Group President and Chief Executive Officer of the KAM Holdings Group of Companies (host company of Chemlab), Dato' Marcus Kam Kok Fei, said, "The laboratory testing industry in Hong Kong is sophisticated, and is seen as one of the major sectors to support Hong Kong's competitiveness.

     "Hong Kong is also the primary platform in our regional expansion plans for Mainland China. In this connection, Hong Kong offers a unique bridge for us to do so."

     Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion Mr Andrew Davis said, "Hong Kong offers world-class testing and reliable certification standards, making it one of the quality centres in Asia for brands and retailers alike.
