Company to expand with offices in Blue Bell
BLUE BELL A research company whose work includes clinical drug trials will expand its Montgomery County presence and has promised to add 250 full-time jobs within three years at offices it is opening in Blue Bell.
Gov. Corbett announced Wednesday that Raleigh, N.C.-based PRA International had leased about 150,000 square feet of space and would spend $10.9 million to make changes to the site, train employees, and buy equipment. The offices will be at the Arborcrest Corporate Campus near Township Line and Union Meeting Roads.
The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development is giving PRA several grants, including one for workforce training.
Last year, PRA, which has an office in Horsham, merged with ReSearch Pharmaceutical Services, which had an office in Fort Washington.
The two facilities will be combined in Blue Bell. - Carolyn Davis
