Emergo Group opens office in Hamburg, Germany.

AUSTIN, TEXAS USA - To meet the needs of their growing European client base, medical device consultancy Emergo Group Inc. has opened a new office in Hamburg, Germany.

The Hamburg office is Emergo Group's fourth in Europe and will greatly expand the firm's ability to serve medical device and IVD manufacturers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The firm's other European offices are located in The Netherlands, France and the UK.

The Hamburg office will offer a wide array of medical device regulatory, quality assurance and distribution consulting services for accessing the lucrative European, US and Japanese markets. In addition, the company also assists medical device manufacturers who want to expand into emerging markets.

Mr. Colin Rylett, Managing Director of European operations, says: "German manufacturers are well established as strong medical device exporters and many of those companies are now looking to expand into emerging markets such as Brazil, Mexico, India and China. In addition to our core European CE Marking and US FDA regulatory compliance services, we can help them reach these markets. We felt it was time to open a local office to better serve our clients in the region."

Mr. Jens Grothues, a seasoned veteran with 17 years of experience in the medical device industry, will serve as General Manager for Emergo Deutschland GmbH. Mr. Grothues has held numerous regulatory and quality assurance roles with respected German device manufacturers and certification bodies including TÜV NORD and MedCert.
