PFA moves to TIC


A Cornish market research firm is celebrating its 21st anniversary by getting the key to a new door.

PFA Research's Beate Galke and Robert Rush

PFA Research has become the latest business to set up at the Tremough Innovation Centre (TIC) in Penryn after relocating from its home in Bodmin.

Founded by the now retired Gil Patrick in 1991 the company specialises in research and analysis for a range of public and private sector organisations across Cornwall and nationwide.

Managing director, Robert Rush, said: “It was a huge decision to leave Bodmin after so many years and one that we gave careful consideration.

“But over the last few years our business model has changed as a result of advances in technology and many of our consultants work from home or further afield meaning that we wanted a more flexible business space.

“We also now have the advantage of being in a centre of innovation with other likeminded businesses, as well as being able to fully utilise superfast broadband to give our clients further support, while gaining an advantage over competitors on a national level.”

Tremough Innovation Centre manager, Richard Snell, said: “We’re really pleased to welcome Robert and the PFA team to the Tremough Innovation Centre.

“The company has a great reputation and a huge amount of experience, which I believe will benefit the other businesses and organisations here.”


  1. Will very much miss observing the PFA’s comings and goings since the fall of 1998 from my across the street Bodmin apartment—particularly the fresh air breaks enjoyed by one whom I now know from above were Beate’s… 
    All the very best…
