(PRWEB) February 27, 2013
Emergo Group, an international regulatory consulting firm, has completed a move into its new headquarters in downtown Austin, leasing more than 13,000 square feet at 816 Congress Avenue. The expansion comes in response to strong demand for the company’s services from medical device manufacturers in the US, Canada and Europe.
Emergo Group specializes in assisting medical device companies with US and international regulatory compliance. The company currently employs 55 people at its headquarters in Austin, with plans to continue hiring throughout 2013.
Asked about the driving factors for growth at the company, Emergo Group President and CEO Rene van de Zande notes: “We’re seeing strong demand from companies that want to expand overseas, but might have been intimidated by the regulatory process. That’s especially true in challenging markets such as China, Brazil, Japan, Mexico and Russia, where having local expertise is key. We now have offices in 23 countries, which allows us to help our 2,500 clients grow by accessing markets they might not otherwise have considered.”
Emergo Group plans to expand throughout 2013, with new offices planned for the Middle East, South America and Southeast Asia.
“We don’t see things slowing down. Healthcare spending continues to rise, especially in fast growing markets like Brazil and China. Medical device companies in the US and Europe are looking for ways to boost the top line, and the rate of growth in those countries far exceeds what they can expect in their home markets,” notes van de Zande.
