An international business with resources on three continents, HLS has been at the forefront of product safety and development testing since our inception in 1952.
Huntingdon Life Sciences is one of the world's largest and most successful Contract Research Organisations. As an international business with resources on three continents, we have been at the forefront of product safety and development testing since our inception in 1952. Originally the company concentrated upon nutrition, veterinary and biochemical research, however, an expansion of services in the late '50s led to the assessment of pharmaceuticals, food additives and a variety of crop protection and consumer chemicals.
Our breadth and depth of expertise is enviable and this ensures that our programmes and studies run smoothly and efficiently and are conducted to the highest standard. We continue to invest in facilities that offer world-class support at all stages of the product development process.
Our company has experienced impressive growth over recent years, by creating a work environment that encourages talented individuals to thrive and make a difference. We have over 1500 staff with many years’ experience in their respective fields. Their scientific reputations mean that we are frequently asked to speak at meetings throughout the world, are invited to sit on influential governmental and trade industry bodies and are continually helping to shape the development of our industry. In addition to their dedication to scientific excellence, all of our staff are deeply committed to delivering industry-leading customer service.
