our company history

We are grateful to the European Union, the Chamber of Commerce and the Industrial Association of Vicenza, which in 1998 founded our Ritex Laboratory.

The initiative started as a response to the many companies in the textile and clothing sector around us who were looking for a highly qualified laboratory for analysis and research on behalf of third parties, especially for those companies who did not have their own in-house instruments.
Since then, we have been a point of reference operating with precision and competence for all companies seeking guarantees of quality and safety of their product and/or process.

Our know how

For many years we have been working on issues related to the work process, defects and potential hazards of fashion garments and accessories.

These are the main issues for which companies in the entire textile supply chain turn to us.

Our detailed knowledge of textile processes and products, combined with our chemical expertise and the implementation of management systems, has enabled us to develop tailor-made services over the years to meet all kinds of needs, whether ordinary or extraordinary, that textile, clothing and accessories companies may have.


The increasingly specialized skills we have developed, combined with a great propensity for results and customer focus, have enabled us to structure ourselves in 3 different complementary areas – TESTING LAB. RESEARCH. SOLUTIONS.

Our goal has always been to provide tailor-made services and tools aimed at continuous business improvement. This is why we also support our customers with consultancy and training activities of the highest level to give support and value to each project.

We are aware that only in this way we can grow together, providing competence and reliability to each partner.

Us in the Ecochem team

Since 1998, the history of Ritex has been full of important steps. One of them was in 2001, when we became part of the Ecochem team.

What is Ecochem? It’s the story of three laboratories (Ritex, Ecochem Lab and Laboratori Fratini) coming together to offer complementary analysis and consultancy services in the fields of environment, materials and microbiology.

An accredited laboratory

The accuracy and precision of our analytical tests are verified by Accredia, Italy’s unique accreditation body for testing laboratories. Accredia inspectors periodically visit our laboratory to assess it in every detail: from the quality of the analytical tests, to the precision of the instruments, to the skills of the staff.

Thus, according to the UNI CEI EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 standard, we proudly state that Ritex is an accredited laboratory with number 0315.

To view the list of our current accredited tests, go to services.accredia.it and in the section type 0315.

ZDHC Approved Solution Provider

The ZDHC Foundation (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) is becoming the reference point for the development and definition of good practices and concrete objectives in the field of sustainable chemistry in the Textile and Clothing sector at international level.

Since a few years we at Ritex have been supporting the ZDHC Foundation as Accredited Trainer Provider for all the courses organised on the ZDHC Academy platform.

We strongly believe that training is a fundamental step to share sustainability goals and to network among all actors in the Textile-Clothing supply chain.
