Our skill and expertise have gained worldwide recognition in a number of industrial fields, such as the industrial extraction and production of active substances of plant or synthetic origin, the design of pharmaceutical boiled sweets and the production of drugs in the form of injectable solutions for the treatment of cancer. These capabilities translates into partnership or production contracts with international pharmaceutical groups.
Based on processes designed internally, our industrial expertise has become increasingly diversified, for example in the manufacturing of dry, liquid and semi-solid forms, with a focus on several niches of excellence, such as aseptic production in isolators for highly active molecules or the pharmaceutical production of boiled sugar.
Our five pharmaceutical factories (Gien, Château-Renard, Pau, Cahors, and Aignan) satisfy the strictest regulatory requirements. They make their expertise and capabilities available to partners through sub-contracting agreements.
PRODUCTION OF SEMI-SOLID SUBSTANCES AND TOOTHPASTE
Based on our considerable expertise in semi-solid forms, which is shared with our dermo-cosmetical factories, our site at Château-Renard (Loiret, France) specializes in the production of toothpaste that meets pharmaceutical standards. The factory produces more than 15 million units per year.
PRODUCTION OF ASEPTIC AND CYTOTOXIC PRODUCTS
The Pau factory (Pyrénées-Atlantiques, France), which from the very beginning specialized in aseptic filling in isolators for cytotoxic molecules, was the first facility in France to be approved by the US health authorities (FDA), in 1993. Since then, our technological expertise has grown, with the production of aseptic products for highly active molecules, which are very sensitive to their environment and require complex and specific processes.
PHARMACEUTICAL BOILED SUGAR
The production of boiled sugar for pharmaceutical products is the key activity of the Aignan site (Gers, France). The factory’s considerable expertise has developed over the years thanks to the only continuous production technology available today in Europe.
All our factories are organized to respond to the demands of the different countries in which our products are marketed. Yet, our site in Cahors (Lot, France) excels specially in the manufacturing of low quantity batches and offers therefore high responsiveness to short-term market needs.
