“The demand for safety, efficacy and acceptability studies is on the rise daily. We’re happy to introduce our newest site and look forward to continuing to provide the highest level of service to our clients,” said Jane Tervooren, global director, client services & corporate strategy. “The opening of our newest site in the US is a continuation of a company-wide expansion for Princeton Consumer Research after twenty successful years headquartered in the United Kingdom.”
PCR has one site in Princeton, NJ and two sites in the UK, located in Chelmsford and Manchester.
“Our dream of expansion began several years ago. That dream became a reality when we opened our site in Princeton in September, 2014," said Tervooren. "The St. Petersburg site will allow greater access for our clients to cost effective product testing in America."
PCR's expansion plans include opening additional sites in Phoenix, Arizona and Winnepeg, Canada in 2016-2017.
The new facility is approximately 12,000 square feet, and has two of the largest environmentally controlled rooms in the US, as well as an enormous database of test subjects to fulfill any research requirement, according to the company. PCR’s business focuses on consumer product testing in areas such as skin, hair, eyes, and teeth. The company performs clinical trials to substantiate any claim that a cosmetic, beauty, personal care product or ingredient states as a benefit or hazard to the consumer.
“We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of customer service, and work with large and small clients alike,” Tervooren concluded.
