Underwriters Labs Increases Supply Chain Services

Safety science company Underwriters Laboratories launched its Information & Insights division, created to meet the demands by businesses for more sustainably made products - including housewares, beauty supplies, cleaning products and consumer technologies from computers to smart devices - and sustainable supply chains.
