PRA expands its European operations with new UK and Dutch offices

Will open new base in Utrecht and relocate its existing Reading, UK offices to a larger site

PRA is expanding its European operations and plans to open a new base in Utrecht in the Netherlands and relocate its existing Reading, UK office to a larger site.

The contract research organisation's (CRO) new Dutch facility will be home to over 20 employees and primarily support product registration trials – the first PRA office to have this focus.

The company's product registration staff had previously been either home-based or have shared facilities with colleagues based in Mechelen in Belgium.

“But to better share best practices among employees, we felt that it was now necessary to provide a permanent office for the increasing Dutch product registration team,” said PRA's Frank van de Wijngaert, vice president and general partner.

Meanwhile, PRA is also relocating over 240 employees based in Reading in the UK to a larger purpose build facility that offers additional room for increasing headcounts and provides modern facilities for client and project team meetings.

The CRO has recently signed a number of major deals, including a biosimilar research agreement with Amgen and global drug development partnership with UCB, and has been expanding of late.

PRA has opened nine new offices in Europe since 2009, including a Romanian base in August 2011, and it also opened new Singapore offices earlier this year.
