Austin, Texas (PRWEB) February 11, 2008
Reflecting a booming market for manufacturers of medical devices, Emergo Group, Inc. recently hired seven new employees to accommodate increased demand from North American companies.

To support continued growth, the following people have recently joined the Austin office:

Martin Sobkowiak - Director of Finance
Teresa Huddleston - Senior Consultant, Quality Assurance & regulatory Affairs
Neal Kolber - Project Manager

CEO Rene van de Zande says: "On average we have grown by more than 30% each year and even with a slowing US economy, we still expect to meet that growth goal in 2008. He adds: "With the continued weakness of the US dollar relative to the Euro and other currencies, we have seen an increase in US companies looking to supplement their domestic sales by exporting their products to other markets such as Europe, Australia, Canada and Japan. We help them do it."
Over the last few years, Emergo Group has been aggressively expanding its consulting services into international markets, opening offices in Beijing, China in late 2006, and Tokyo, Japan (April 2008.) "With more than 500 clients from 35 countries worldwide, our clients increasingly want to deal with a single consultancy that can handle all of their international regulatory, quality assurance and distribution management issues." says van de Zande.
