14 January 2021 2 min. read

Following Regulatory and Quality Solutions LLC (R&Q)’s acquisition of Maetrics, the company has rebranded as RQM+. The combined firm is the largest regulatory and quality consulting firm specializing in the medical devices industry.

The September 2020 combination brought together two US-based firms with a similar headcount (approximately 200 professionals each) and a similar focus (regulatory and quality consulting for life sciences firms).

Maetrics was based in Indianapolis, and supported medical device, pharmaceutical, diagnostics, and biotech firms with regulatory and quality consulting. Founded in 1984, the company had additional locations in Nottingham, UK, and Basel, Switzerland.

R&Q was based in Monroeville, PA, with additional offices in Cleveland, St. Paul, and Braintree, UK. The consulting firm was founded in 2008 by a team of women medical device regulatory experts.Medical device specialists R&Q and Maetrics rebrand as RQM+ after mergerThe rebranded and integrated RQM+ remains headquartered in Monroeville, with R&Q co-founder Maria Fagan serving as president.

"The vision has always been to extend our global footprint as the leader in providing full-service regulatory and quality solutions to the medical device and diagnostic industries,” Fagan said. “We have merged R&Q’s and Maetrics’ services and operations and are excited to take the next step of rebranding, to demonstrate the incredible capabilities of our combined companies. Together, as RQM+, we will assist our clients in improving even more people’s lives with our highly scalable service offerings and a truly global footprint.”

RQM+’s US and Europe consultants provide a strengthened suite of specialist consulting services to medical device, diagnostics, and pharmaceutical industry clients. This includes regulatory strategy and submissions, quality systems advisory, safety risk management, implementation of compliance programs (including for the EU), program management with a quality assurance focus, and regulatory finding response management.

The vision statement of the new brand is “To be the world’s most trusted and valued partner in providing transformative regulatory and quality solutions to medical device and diagnostics manufacturers.”
