The Hermes Hansecontrol Group was founded in Hamburg in 1982 and is now an international test and certification company with seven sites in Europe and Asia.
The corporate group offers manufacturers, retailers and importers a comprehensive range of accredited testing and tailored consulting services ranging from product development and protection through to risk management.
Hermes Hansecontrol supports its customers on all questions related to quality assurance: from the creation of requirement profiles and instruction manuals, product testing during production, through to sampling prior to market introduction. Hermes Hansecontrol deploys personal account managers to provide manufacturers with tailored solutions for the quality assurance of their products.
At its headquarters in Hamburg, the Hermes Hansecontrol Group is represented by the testing and consulting services of Prüfinstitut Hansecontrol GmbH (Hermes Hansecontrol Hamburg). Also on offer are the certification services of the independent Hansecontrol Zertifizierungsgesellschaft mbH (Hermes Hansecontrol-Cert). Hermes Hansecontrol-Cert has been a GS authority (tested safety) since 2009 and, in addition to the GS mark and the CB certificate, also offers private test marks.
With branch offices in Dongguan, Hong Kong and Shanghai, alongside Hermes Eco Laboratories in India, the group is well represented on the most important international production and export markets for consumer goods. Hermes Hansecontrol also covers other global locations – including the US, Bangladesh, Turkey, Indonesia, and Vietnam – courtesy of the laboratories of its cooperation partner Modern Testing Services (MTS). From the auditing of production sites and product testing up to and including inspection immediately prior to shipping, Hermes Hansecontrol offers a full range of services at the premises of its customers for project supervision and quality assurance along the entire production chain.
