Inc Research, a contract research organization, has moved its European headquarters and regional team into a new office in Great Britain.

The new facility was needed to accommodate growth, Inc said, noting that its European operation has increased business by more than 100 percent over the past year.

“The new location of our European headquarters, and additional expansion planned in Central, Eastern and Western Europe for 2005, will continue to provide us with a strategic advantage,” said Kelvin Logan, president of Inc Research Europe. “Of primary consideration is remaining in close proximity to existing and future customers, so we can more quickly provide responsive, quality service. In addition, we can access a sizeable employee base of scientific and industry expertise, as well as specific patient populations critical to rapid execution of our customer’s clinical programs.”

The office is near Heathrow Airport outside London.
