Hamburg/Stockholm, 16th January 2024. With the acquisition of the Swedish company Key2Compliance AB (Key2Compliance), GBA Group is expanding its range of consulting and training services for the medical device, In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD), and pharmaceutical industry. GBA Group is thus taking another important step towards establishing itself as a broad service provider for international customers in this area.

Today, the company employs more than 70 experts and, in addition to its headquarters in Stockholm, has two other branches in Sweden and one in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The expansion of our service portfolio enables us to provide our customers with optimal support along the value chain, from preclinical development and the conduct of clinical trials through to production release and quality assurance”.

Jan Hellqvist, CEO Key2Compliance says, “With GBA Group, its structure and management we found the right partner to foster our ongoing journey of growth and internationalization. The company’s culture of entrepreneurship, local autonomy, and genuine support as well as the broad variety of revealing synergies between both companies’ services convinced me.
