Medical device consultancy opens office to support industry interest in Southeast Asian markets
Online PR News – 25-May-2012 – Austin, Texas – Regulatory and quality assurance consulting firm Emergo Group has opened offices in Hong Kong and Taiwan to address growing interest in Asian markets among medical device manufacturers.
Emergo Group will provide medical device registration support for companies seeking to commercialize their products in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Current medical device regulatory reforms in these markets are expected to make registration processes more predictable and formalized, attracting more medical device companies that previously overlooked these markets to export their products.
“Hong Kong and Taiwan both feature small but robust medical device markets, but previously medical device registration in these regions was not well understood,” explains Bryan Gilburg, Vice President of Business Development, Asian Markets at Emergo Group. “With more transparent, clear-cut regulatory systems for medical devices in place, Hong Kong and Taiwan are now becoming more compelling markets for our clients.”
Emergo Group has already firmly established itself in major Asian markets including Japan, China, South Korea and India. Expanding into additional regional markets is essential to providing more comprehensive support for medical device firms exporting to Asia, says Gilburg.
“More and more often, our clients are asking us for support registering their devices in Southeast Asia. Establishing offices in Hong Kong and Taiwan provides on-the-ground expertise in these markets to help medical device firms obtain regulatory approval as efficiently as possible."
Emergo Group’s new office addresses are:
Emergo Hong Kong Limited
Unit 3709, 37th Floor, Tower II, Lippo Centre
89 Queensway, Admiralty
Shin Kong Manhattan Building
14/F, No. 8, Sec. 5, Xinyi Road
