GS1 US relocates headquarters to Ewing, New Jersey
GS1 US, the information standards organization, has relocated from Princeton Pike Corporate Center in Lawrenceville, NJ to a new, “built-to-suit” office located in the Princeton South Corporate Center at 300 Charles Ewing Boulevard in Ewing, New Jersey. GS1 US will continue to be co-located with U.S. subsidiaries of GS1, the global standards organization, and 1Worldsync, a leading provider of product content solutions.
GS1 US worked with The Opus Group and Founders Properties, L.L.C. to develop, design and construct the new two-story building, which features an open and collaborative environment, along with the latest technology solutions to support the organization’s evolving business needs. It offers employees several more conference and meeting rooms, including a large meeting space to accommodate educational workshops often held on-premises, and a special sound-proof room for higher quality webinar broadcasts.
“Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for GS1 US,” said Bob Carpenter, president and CEO, GS1 US. “Our transition to a more collaborative workspace will position GS1 US to better serve the dynamic needs of our customers, who given the rapidly-evolving nature of business today, increasingly rely on GS1 US as a partner to aid in their growth and success.”
Best known as the administrator of the U.P.C. barcode since 1974, GS1 US collaborates with member companies and their supply chain partners to improve the efficiency, safety and visibility of commerce across physical and digital channels through the unique identification of products, locations and more in real-time. With the evolution of e-commerce and increased consumer demand for trustworthy product data, GS1 US has grown in recent years to better support member innovations and technological advancements. What started as a way to speed grocery store checkout has become the global language of business and today more than six billion GS1 barcodes are scanned per day.
