At fifty years old, the Servier “village factory” in Gidy continues to grow. This vast pharmaceutical site, opened in 1973, twenty years later after the creation of the Servier laboratories in Orléans, will benefit from new investments. More than 100 million will be injected into production and research over the next five years.
With 800 employees and around twenty buildings spread over 64 hectares, this factory is already the largest in the group with 40% of drug production. With these new projects, it will further strengthen itself, “by specializing in large volumes” to go from 245 to 300 million boxes per year in 2030, explains Augustin Blanc, who has just taken over management of this industrial site. .
Construction of a new building
The second largest French pharmaceutical laboratory, Servier manufactures its flagship there, such as Daflon, Coversyl and Diamicron. It was also there that he produced the Mediator, whose appeal trial ended in Junewith a decision expected at the end of the year.
These investments will make it possible to install new manufacturing lines and modernize the site. The group will also build a new building to accommodate some of the teams responsible for the technical development of future products.
To run these installations, Servier will hire. Around a hundred permanent positions will be created over these five years, to which will be added 50 job creations starting this year, as well as 20 to 30 other research jobs, particularly in cancer treatment.
