FIRST Q is a network of Engineering and Consultancy Services with members from 15 different European countries with a total workforce of over 4000 people and a combined turnover of over €300 million.

The aim of FIRST Q Network is to share knowledge, expertise and resources in the mechanical and electrical consultancy field across Europe. By sharing knowledge from one country to the next it allows each member to dip into a rich database of experience and to use this to help provide world class design in their own country. By sharing expertise it allows members to work across country borders to ensure local compliance is achieved.

Expertise in the network is used to help members pre-qualify for projects in either their own market or foreign markets where they have client contacts. The network is constantly seeking to expand its membership base to add additional international experience, marketing knowledge and specialist skills.
