Carteret, NJ – Mayor Daniel J. Reiman joined with members of the regional business community on Wednesday, June 19th, for the official Grand Opening of SGS in West Carteret. The company recently chose to relocate back to Carteret from Bayonne, with new laboratory facilities at 900 Milik Street.
The 25,000 sq. ft. structure was formerly vacant, and has received $4 million in improvements from SGS with their relocation. Once fully operational, the Carteret location alone will employ between 50-100 people.
SGS is among the world’s leading fuel inspection, verification, testing and certification companies, recognized as a global benchmark in its field. With more than 75,000 employees worldwide, SGS operates a network of over 1,500 offices and laboratories around the world. Its first Oil, Gas & Chemicals Division branch in the United States was established in Carteret, New Jersey in 1979. In 2001, it relocated to Bayonne, and officially returned to Carteret in June 2013.
Across the globe, the company offers solutions for agrochemicals, seed, biofuels, fertilisers, food and forestry, assessing quality, adding value and securing safe and sustainable global supply chains.
