Newly-named to Inc. 5000, Regulatory and Quality Solutions LLC (R & Q) expands into Boston’s medical device industry market

August 21, 2014

Pittsburgh-based R & Q has officially commenced operations in the Boston area, providing best-in-class quality and regulatory solutions to the medical device industry in a region identified as a leading market.

The announcement comes with R & Q’s recent achievement of being named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America.

The company is anticipating hiring approximately 30 employees to serve the Boston expansion. R & Q is actively securing a core team with a full staff to be established by mid-2015.

“We are excited about our new office in Boston, and we’re ready to provide business-balanced solutions to Boston’s medical device community,” said Maria Fagan, president of R & Q.

An ISO 9001 certified company poised for expansion, R & Q’s revenue growth doubled from 2013 to 2014. R & Q’s first site beyond Western Pennsylvania opened in Cleveland, Ohio in 2012.

R & Q supports the life-cycle of medical devices from conceptual development through post-market surveillance, providing solutions that accelerate the success of medical device companies and improve people’s lives. Business-focused with proven best practice and strategic and tactical solutions, R & Q experts focus on all aspects of business-balanced decisions of regulatory and quality, emerging trends and defining new ways of maintaining compliance.

Founded in 2008, the company has received numerous awards, including Best Places to Work in Western Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh 100 Award and is recognized nationally as a Great Place to Work.
