S. Franzen Söhne GmbH – For over 180 years

State-of-the-art test laboratory

Time and cost-efficient simulations

Based on TÜV test facility
Franzen has a test laboratory for cases, their attachments and similar products, which is based on the original TÜV test equipment for this area. In our laboratory, for example, we simulate the most diverse situations of everyday and unusual use of luggage, designed for the life cycle of the products.

Save time and money
We carry out product testing during development and before series launch. As such, we avoid time-consuming and cost-intensive adaptation processes. The tests are always documented in comprehensive test and damage reports.

Use also for external clients
We also offer our testing service to all interested parties, such as case manufacturers. We test your products in our test laboratory under TÜV-like conditions according to our guidelines or your own specifications. The tests are always documented in comprehensive test and damage reports.
