About SGS Govmark


Established in 1971, SGS Govmark has been a trusted name in the fire testing industry all these many years. As a major independent laboratory for Fire, Flammability & Physical testing — SGS Govmark's testing reports are accepted worldwide.

SGS Govmark's 15,000 square foot fire testing facility is headquartered in Farmingdale, NY, conveniently located near all major New York airports and within one hour from Manhattan.

SGS Govmark also has a rich, pioneering history of the manufacturing of fire testing instruments that has recently been acquired by Deatak Testing Instruments (formerly SGS Govmark, LTD).

The sale of the instrument division allows SGS Govmark to increase the resources that are employed in the fire testing & physical testing laboratory. This will result in the exponential expansion of all of its fire & flammability testing solutions for all companies that need to meet the demands of the increasing number of firecodes & enforcement of these fire codes in the world marketplace.
