Wilkins Research Services (WRS), was founded in 1971 by the late Madge H. Wilkins. The start up of the company was predominately from door to door survey data collection and sales inventory measurement projects. During the 1980’s, substantial growth occurred due to an increased volume of telephone interviews. By the early 1990’s the company moving along with the industry in coverting from predominately paper questionnaires to CATI questionnaires. Increasing the size of the call center and an update to their focus group facilities mandated the construction of a new 7000 square foot building in 1998. Following in the familiar footsteps of success, WRS again needed more space to expand their operations in 2006 and now occupies 10,000 square feet.
