York research consultancy joins Leicester group

York-based research, evaluation and insight consultancy, Qa Research has joined Leicester’s EMB Group.

EMB Group provides a range of professional services designed to drive meaningful change through business information & advice, grant & transaction processing, and research & insight services. This latest acquisition increases the number of people working in the research division of the business to over 60.

For Qa, the sale represented an opportunity to become part of a larger group of companies and tap into a sophisticated infrastructure, whilst continuing to operate as a stand-alone business under the well-respected Qa Research brand, retaining the current team of experts.

Richard Bryan, Managing Director of Qa, said: “Over the past few years, Qa has been growing steadily and we wanted to find a partner with the right systems and culture to underpin this growth.

“As a business that is already engaged with many of our sectors and which understands how research agencies operate, EMB Group is a great fit for us. We’re excited to be part of the Group and working alongside the other research teams.”

Danielle Gillett, CEO of EMB Group, said: “Since entering the research market in early 2023, we have been steadily increasing our capability and the sectors we cover.

“Through their wide range of qualitative, quantitative and data collection services, Qa bring a new dimension to our offer, as well as strengthening our existing research and insight expertise and we’re delighted to welcome them to the Group.”

Qa Research will sit alongside Blue Marble Research and Pye Tait Consulting and continue to operate from their base in York.
