We are extremely proud of our state of the art Quality Control laboratory located at our Corporate Headquarters in Seminole, Florida. Our lab is equipped with over $300,000 worth of testing equipment. Testing is conducted using Standard Industrial Test Methods such as AATCC and ASTM as specified by ASQ (American Society for Quality).

Every major source of Superior Uniform Group is required to be able to do much of the same testing we do here in Seminole. In fact, we have set up a lab in Central America that has much of the same equipment. We are often complimented by fabric suppliers and laundry companies on having one of the most sophisticated labs in the country. This department interfaces very closely with our engineering department to prepare all of the manufacturing, fabric, findings and audit procedures and specifications for each and every uniform we make.
We use over 25 different machines to perform various tests on our garments to ensure we are put out the best quality product in the industry. A few of these machines include:
- Industrial Washer
- Datacolor® System - Photo Spectrophotometer
- Macbeth Lightbox
- Pilling Tester
- Wrinkle Test
- Taber Abraser
- Impact Penetration / Spray Test
- Perspiration Tester
- Resistivity Tester
- Twist Test
