GSK Consumer Healthcare has inaugurated a new facility in Warren, New Jersey, US, which will employ nearly 900 people.

The facility has been opened as part of a joint venture between GSK and Novartis, which was finalised in March last year.

Spread over an area of around 109,000ft², the Warren facility houses three lab suites comprised of a shopper science lab, consumer sensory lab and a R&D Lab. These facilities are scheduled to open later this month.

The shopper science lab has been designed to optimise collaboration between GSK, the retailer and the consumer.

GSK Consumer Healthcare North America general manager Colin Mackenzie said: "The opening of GSK Warren provides a tremendous opportunity for our US-based team to come together under one roof, to foster collaboration and build a great place to work.

"That collaboration and the SMART working design promise to give our teams every advantage to produce best-in-class work that will get us closer to our consumers and retail customers."

GSK Consumer Healthcare North America integration director Michael McClaine said: "GSK has a unique opportunity to create the first and best Fast Moving Consumer Healthcare (FMCH), the new GSK Consumer Healthcare, that drives growth, outperforms the competition and reaches more consumers around the world so that they can do more, feel better and live longer."
