Our story

We are grateful to the European Union, the Vicenza Chamber of Commerce and the Vicenza Industrial Association that established our Ritex laboratory in 1998.

The necessity of our laboratory arose to satisfy many textile and clothing companies around Vicenza, asking for a highly qualified laboratory research and analysis on behalf of third parties, especially for those companies not equipped with appropriate internal instruments.

Since then, we make use of expertise and experience to communicate with companies looking for a quality and safety performance of their products and processes.

Our know how

For many years we have been working on issues related to the manufacturing process, defects and critical aspects of fashion items and accessories.

This is the main reason why textile companies call us.

Talking with companies, performing analysis and finding solutions, allowed us to develop over the years in-depth skills for every kind of need related to the textile industry.

Our strength: more than analysis

Our instrumentation is complete, accredited and allows us to perform a large number of analysis.

Moreover, we work alongside companies with our top-level consulting services in order to explain the path must be taken, to make analytical data more comprehensible and, above all, to suggest the ideal solution.

Our strength is therefore to build a trust relationship in order to achieve our customers satisfaction.

We are part of the Ecochem team

Since 1998, Ritex history has been full of landmark events. Two out of all: in 2001 we joined the Ecochem team; in 2012 we became effective part of the newborn Ecochem Group SpA.

What is Ecochem Group? It’s the story of three laboratories (Centro Ricerche Ritex, Ecochem and Laboratori Fratini) which have come together to offer complementary analysis and consulting services in the fields of environment, materials and microbiology.

An accredited laboratory

The accuracy and precision of our analysis tests are verified by Accredia, the only body in Italy to accredit laboratories. Accredia inspectors periodically visit our lab to evaluate it in detail: the quality of analytical tests, the precision of instruments and our staff skills.

Thus, according to the UNI CEI EN 17025:2005 standard, we proudly state that Ritex Laboratory is accredited by Accredia with number 315.

Perhaps you know ZDHC Foundation (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals): it is the promoter for the development of policies and good practices to break down the “harmful chemistry” in the textile industry.

It’s a real world-class reference point and we are their contributors within the “Value Chain Affiliates Committed to ZDHC”.

Also several big fashion brands have already joined the ZDHC program, such as Adidas, H&M, Inditex, Hugo Boss, Nike and Levi Strauss. If you want to learn more, the ZDHC website is roadmaptozero.com/contributors.
