"This is an important opportunity for Applied DNA to bring our proven technologies to the heart of India's textile industry, and share our impeccable standards and operational protocols," said Dr. Lansky. "The laboratory will have the ability to process thousands of samples, serving our textiles customers in the region."
"Opening a lab in Gujarat has both strategic and practical importance for Applied DNA," said Dr. James A. Hayward, president and chief executive officer of Applied DNA. "Our partnership with Himatsingka has proven remarkably successful, with uptake in the commercial ecosystem and endorsement by big box retailers. Adoption of our technologies by other textile companies is growing. Working closely with such India-based industry majors as Himatsingka and GHCL, we know Applied DNA's value in enabling source-verified supplied chains and contributing the steady growth and ensured protection of the circular economy. It only makes sense for Applied DNA to have a facility where so many of our current and future partners are based."
