Food and pharmaceutical contract research organisation RSSL has announced the opening of a new analytical testing facility in Reading, UK.
The facility, described by RSSL as ‘state-of-the-art,’ is located on the University of Reading Whiteknights campus. It will increase capacity to aid RSSL in meeting the growing demand of its global client base across the food, life science, healthcare and consumer goods sectors.
According to RSSL, the expansion has been driven by its recent significant organic growth and successful strategic partnerships, which have enabled it to double its revenue since 2016.
With a base of over 3,000 clients in 60 countries across the European, US, LATAM and APAC markets, the new facility aims to accelerate turnaround times and deliver efficiencies for RSSL’s clients around the world.
It will add an extra 26,000 square feet of working laboratory space with new technical capabilities to complement RSSL’s existing UKAS-accredited, MHRA- and FDA-approved facilities.
RSSL has also announced a major investment into expanding its workforce from 350 to over 500 in the next three years, by doubling the number of scientists in its team.
Jacinta George, managing director at RSSL, said: “Our clients are at the forefront of innovation within their industries, working on projects ranging from sustainable food solutions to next-generation therapeutics”.
She added: “With this exciting new expansion, we will be able to continue supporting them to develop high-quality, safe products that meet complex regulatory requirements and consumer needs”.
