TÜV Rheinland building new Boston test center

Global certification company TÜV Rheinland has begun construction of a new multi-million dollar, advanced technology product testing and certification facility in Boston.

The new center will support the testing of consumer electronics including home appliances and connected products, as well as products from other industries.

According to TÜV Rheinland, the facility will serve as a technology and innovation center, supporting domestic and global customers with their product and technology needs in the fields of testing and certification.

The facility is expected to be operational at the end of 2023, becoming a first of its kind in the Northeast US, the company said.

“TÜV Rheinland has made major commitments in continued growth and development of its core business in the US”, said Kimmo Fuller, TÜV Rheinland’s business executive vice president products. “Massachusetts has long been characterized as a land of creation and a birthplace of new technologies. This significant next step showcases our commitment to our customers in the US.”

The full service hub affords customers with end-to-end solutions at various stages of the product lifecycle, while providing space for collaboration, troubleshooting, training, meetings and customer space. Clients and partners with complex strategies and needs will be able to take full advantage of time savings, assist in decreasing their time to market, onsite collaboration with engineering and compliance advisors, and access to regulatory expertise.

The center will include comprehensive electrical safety, wireless, EMC and environmental testing infrastructure. The new site is located approximately 12 miles from TÜV Rheinland’s existing Boston facility.
