QMI Acquires QCB Inc.

Published: Tuesday, September 7, 2004 - 22:00

The recent acquisition of Quality Certification Bureau Inc. by QMI made QMI the largest registrar in North America, according to the registrar.

The buy-out includes QCB Inc., QBC Corp., and QCB Organic, companies that are collectively based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. QMI reports it now has more than 10,700 registrations serviced by more than 400 employees.

Customers will notice little change as the companies are merged, QMI reports. “QMI and QCB have built strong reputations both here and abroad as respected registrars providing premier customer service,” says Wendy Tilford, QMI president. “Acquisition is a significant element of our growth strategy and QCB is an excellent fit.”
