GS1 US Relocates Headquarters to Ewing

GS1 US, the information standards organization, has relocated from Princeton Pike Corporate Center in Lawrenceville to a new, “built-to-suit” office located in the Princeton South Corporate Center at 300 Charles Ewing Boulevard in Ewing. 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. During a ribbon cutting ceremony today, more than 100 employees celebrated the milestone and were joined by Ewing Mayor, Bert Steinmann, who officially welcomed the organizations and staff to the township.

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 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.

“Central New Jersey, and specifically, Mercer County, is a major transportation and cultural hub that has served GS1 US well over the last 20 years,” said Bob Carpenter, president and CEO, GS1 US. “Given the close proximity to New York, Philadelphia, Princeton, and Trenton, the Princeton South campus will continue to provide access to the area’s rich talent in a modern building optimally designed to serve the dynamic needs of our customers.”

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.
