CREPIM SUPPORTS YOU IN CHINA FOR FIRE TEST!!!!

Sunday 29 march 2015

FIRE EXPERTISE of CREPIM CHINA : A NEW CHALLENGING ADVENTURE!!!!!

CREPIM signed a cooperative agreement with EcoSafene to make EcoSafene its sole authorized representative in China. CREPIM is set to establish an Asian office and offer more professional and authoritative fire testing services for companies in the Far East, especially in China.

EcoSafene believes in CREPIM’s undoubted professionalism and authoritativeness. CREPIM is acknowledged by the COFRAC, the European Railway Certification Agency, the French Interior Ministry, the Bureau Veritas, the CRT, the SNCP and the RATP, and is also a notified body in the EU. All these interest and please Chinese enterprises, as in reality, there’s a big gap between the fire resistance research achievements made by China and developed European countries. CREPIM’s entry into the Chinese market will not only give EcoSafene strong support, but also push forward the development of the fire resistance industry
