VSS Group by reason of commitment to quality management and assurance established the first independent 17025 laboratory onsite. Now a days the significance of sustain product manufacturing is not hidden to any industrial sectors. The process of manufacturing rubber is a complicated procedure but fundamentally it manufactures rubber products with a disparate duration of time period that manufactures the same quality of rubber with the same indexes such as having similar quality, standards and the same chemical characteristics. The driven cause of VSS companies’ establishment was due to the fact of the laboratorial results that was achieved by our quality controlled management.
