Great news! The Ideon company QAdvis has received the title “Gasell Company 2021” from Dagens Industri. Ideon got the opportunity to have a quick chat with QAdvis CEO, Nils-Åke Lindberg, about the happy news.
Congratulations, how does this feel?
This of course feels great fun and we are very proud! These requirements extend over a three-year period and it is in recent years that we have worked with organic growth. We have done this in a controlled way where it is important for us to have the right people with the right skills at the company. In this way, we have slowly but surely expanded our business.
How has the pandemic affected your company?
It hasn’t affected us that much, we have been able to grow instead. But there have been some ups and downs regarding operations linked to clinical studies during the pandemic. These have not been able to be carried out as normal and the development is therefore backwards, that is the negative effects for our company.
But in the second scale, it is the opposite. There has been and is a great demand for covid tests, for example. We help companies evaluate these according to the regulations. We help them achieve the right requirements and there has been great demand during the pandemic.
How’s the future looking for QAdvis?
We will continue to want to grow in a controlled manner. We want to be the best, but we have no ambition to be the biggest. We want to have specialist competence. Those who work with us will be able to flourish and become even better. This price does not really affect our visions for the future, but it gives proof that what you are doing is good and in the right direction.
– Nils-Åke Lindberg, CEO of QAdvis
