Unither Headquarters

Amiens, France
Unither was born in Amiens in 1993, with the purchase of this site from leading French pharma company Sanofi. With a current staff of 300, Amiens was the first site to specialize in the Blow-Fill-Seal (BFS) technology and now has over 20 years of experience in the technology.

Huge manufacturing capacity is provided by numerous (constantly growing) high-speed BFS lines. The plant produces 1.5 billion unit-doses per year. The analytical team validates methods and performs ICH stability studies.
