We recruit professionals in all health professions, including medical, regulatory affairs, marketing, medical, research and production. If you’re inspired by the possibilities of science to make a difference and ready to discover what you can do – join us.

Our site at Reims hosts a high-tech production unit that specialises in the packaging and distribution of tablets and capsules. The site now has seven separate packaging lines and in 2015 produced around 41 million boxes with 140 different products.
Our production plant in northern France produces vital asthma medicines for the whole world in the form of dry powder and aerosol. We are the only manufacturer producing these aerosol products with a unique technology, which are exported to the U.S., South America and Europe.
