February 11 2016, Long Beach, CA  ACT Lab will officially open an independent third-party product safety and compliance testing facility in Taichung, Taiwan by third-quarter 2016 per the continued demand for quality products sourced from the region.

“Since ACT’s inception we have envisioned opening a testing lab in Taiwan.   With continued demand from our customers and the current global regulatory climate, those plans will now come to fruition,” states ACT’s President and General Manager John Bogler.

In 2015 ACT retained Brad Hughes and the Matisse Worldwide Corporation to consult with the new lab’s opening.   The Matisse Corp., who is also based in Taichung, has provided intimate knowledge of governmental and business relations in the region.  Matisse’s contacts and experience within industries that ACT serves have assisted with the initial phase for the lab’s launch.  The lab’s official address in Taichung will be announced later this year.

Once online, ACT Taiwan will immediately begin research and development and regulatory compliance mechanical and chemical testing on bicycles, electric bicycles, bicycle components, cycling accessories, helmets, scooters, toys and other sporting goods and general consumer products destined to the America’s, Europe and other regions around the globe.  ACT also plans to offer a wider variety of quality, inspection, and auditing programs to its clientele doing business in Taiwan in support of increased international mandates and requirements for quality throughout the product development cycle.
