The new facility

The new site is dedicated to the custom development and production of sterile injectable drug products. Built on newly acquired land located 7km from an existing CARBOGEN AMCIS site in Riom, the new facility increases product development and manufacturing capacity for liquid and freeze-dried products for pre-clinical and clinical trials as well as small scale commercial use.

The construction of the new production unit started in January 2021, in the midst of the Covid crisis and in a very tense context with regard to the availability and costs of raw materials. However, the work was completed on schedule at the end of 2022. The qualification of the various equipment is underway and the launch of the first productions is planned for the first quarter of 2023.



Significant job creation

Over the past two years, the company has created more than 80 jobs directly linked to the creation of the new production site. And around fifty additional positions are to be filled over 2023 in various fields: development, production, support functions, projects, quality assurance, maintenance, quality control, etc.
