Our Facilities

A.C.D.S. Research, Inc. is an independent agricultural contract research firm located in EPA Region 1, in North Rose and Dundee, New York.  Our company was founded in 1975 as A.C.D.S., Inc. by Ken Trammel, Ph.D. in Phelps, New York.  Ken added the GLP freezer truck division in 1982.  As business continued to grow, Grant Jordan, Ph.D. was brought into the company in 1986, and Harry Humphreys, B.S.Ed. in 1988.  In 1993, Grant and Harry purchased the research division of the company from Ken and relocated the Agronomic, Vegetable & Specialty Crop Division to North Rose (East Farm), and the Grapes, Tree & Small Fruit & Hops Division to Dundee (Overlook Farms).  Since then, we have continually expanded our research services to meet the needs of the industry and our clients, and to suit the capabilities of our team members.  This has been made possible by our team members regularly building upon their past education and field experience with a wide variety of professional development.  As a result, we are at your service to meet all of your GLP, efficacy and processing trial needs.  As we look to the future, we look forward to continuing to offer you high quality agricultural research services.
