Colomiers Manufacturing Site

Colomiers, France
The Colomiers site was acquired from Sanofi in 2009, with state-of-the-art non-sterile bottled liquids, and semi-solids operations in place. Capabilities were enhanced by adding liquid stick-pack technology. With a current staff of 230, the site has a high production capacity with several high-speed stick-pack machines delivering 350 million sticks per year, bottle lines delivering 50 million bottles per year, and suppository and pessary lines. Liquid products can be produced in both Europe and in North America, ensuring ready availability on both continents.
