Qualibet Testing Services Corporation, a local company headed by Chemist Pinky Pe Tobiano, recently entered the international scene through an acquisition by Bureau Veritas AsureQuality (BVAQ). The local company specializes in chemical and microbiology testing of food, water, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics.
Bureau Veritas AsureQuality (BVAQ) is a French-owned company and a major player in the global testing and certification industry. The corporation has made a name for itself as a world leader in quality testing and has acquired revenue of EUR 4.8 billion in the last year.
Through the acquisition, Qualibet-BVAQ is now front and center on the global stage of quality testing, thus opening endless possibilities for the Filipino-ran company in motion, especially now that the microbiology testing market is projected to see significant growth in the next few years.
Ms. Tobiano is confident that the French corporation will continue Qualibet’s advocacy of providing accurate results. It will also raise the quality of the testing process given BVAQ’s infrastructure and its plan to invest in modern and sophisticated laboratory equipment that will test more samples in all of its branches worldwide.
“Qualibet has a proven track record of ensuring consumers that the food and water they expend are safe through laboratory testing. Through the alliance, I look forward to BVAQ continuing and even leveling up what Qualibet has started in the past years,” enthused Pinky Pe Tobiano, who is now part of the Board of Directors of Qualibet-BVAQ
True to the organization’s philosophy, Qualibet has provided accurate and precise results to the companies they have assisted, whether government bodies, large companies or SMEs, by analyzing their water, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and food products for their registration in the FDA so they can market their products commercially with a seal of safety. “Partnering with Qualibet has brought us and our residences great satisfaction and peace of mind,” shared Ambassador Joey Antonio of Century Properties.
Likewise, Peter Mar, Operations Manager, of Monde M. Y. San Corporation shared the same sentiment, “We know Pinky Tobiano and her passion for excellence, because of Qualibet’s reliable analyses, we were able to make prompt and informed decisions business-wise.”
“This is not just a landmark achievement for our company, but also a milestone for Filipino chemists as we have now broken ground in the global playing field of science, analysis, validation, and certification. We now have a chance of not only bringing about good changes in our country but also to the rest of the world,” Ms. Tobiano shared.
On her recent international feat, Ms. Tobiano added, “Work hard for your dream. There is no shortcut to hard work and building a good network. Your network is your net worth. Always instill the value of gratitude in everything you do. A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles.”
