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."

The new site will house a cross-functional mix of employees, including marketing and sales, research and development, quality, and supply chain team.

"GSK Consumer Healthcare is said to be one of the world’s largest consumer healthcare companies."

The interior design of the plant is modelled after GSK’s global approach to SMART working, which provides an open floor plan as well as flexible workspace and hours to better accommodate the individual needs of employees while fostering collaboration.

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."

GSK Consumer Healthcare is said to be one of the world’s largest consumer healthcare companies.

The company’s healthcare brands include Sensodyne, Theraflu, Excedrin, Nicorette and NicoDerm CQ, Flonase, and TUMS.
