AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medical device regulatory consulting firm Emergo Group Inc. has opened new offices in Paris, France and Minneapolis, MN USA to meet increasing demand from clients in Europe and the northern United States. The company has been aggressively pursuing international expansion recently. The new European and US offices come just weeks after the company opened an office in Mexico City.

CEO Rene van de Zande says: “Our North American and European clients are increasingly looking for additional opportunities to export their products and they want to work with a single firm that can help them with regulatory compliance in numerous international markets. They’re not interested in working with multiple medical device consultants that can only assist in 1 or 2 geographic regions.”

The Paris office is Emergo’s second in Europe and will greatly expand Emergo’s ability to serve companies in France, the 4th largest medical device market in the world. Emergo France will offer a full complement of medical device regulatory compliance and quality assurance services that will make it easier for Emergo to assist French companies with European CE Marking, US FDA 510(k) submissions, ISO 13485/FDA GMP quality system compliance and more. Franck Martin, formerly with LNE (a large French testing and auditing firm) will serve as Director of Emergo France.
