Knowing your textiles have passed stringent testing standards is crucial to having confidence in their performance and quality. Our laboratory has a mix of capabilities, both in physical and chemical testing of textile goods.

Based in Melbourne, the Charles Parsons Laboratory is a diversified textile testing laboratory with accreditation approval from LRQA for ISO 9001: 2015. Using the latest laboratory equipment and technology, we are able to fully test the most exacting industry standards. Having confidence in consistent quality and stipulated performance characteristics of textiles remains more critical than ever before. Australian garment manufacturers have been using the Charles Parsons laboratory for testing conventional materials for over four decades. The Lab Services Division also helps Charles Parsons’ customers and suppliers develop new products of mutual interest from concept to commercialisation stage.

“All products that Charles Parsons supply are subject to a rigorous testing regime in its ISO approved testing lab and we need to keep abreast of the latest developments in the field of textiles both here and overseas, to ensure all products are tested against ever-evolving international standards,” says Charles W Parsons, Executive Director.
