Nemera celebrates the opening of the extension at its upper Normandy siteJanuary 22, 2014
Specialising in pharmaceutical packaging, Nemera inaugurated the extension to its Le Tréport production plant in France on Wednesday 22 January 2014.
The Nemera site in Le Tréport (Normandy) has been growing fast and is now equipped with new facilities to pursue its expansion strategy.
The site, which specialises in drug delivery systems, celebrated a double investment on 22 January with 5,200 m² of new facilities:
- The development of its production department with a new unit measuring 3750 m², including a new 2900 m² clean room;
- A 1500 m² space to house maintenance workshops, the metrology department, a laboratory and new staff facilities.
This extensive project represents a total investment of over 20 million euros and forms part of the Nemera’s overall investment plan.
Nemera recently introduced the Advancia® pump, the development of which was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund in Normandy.
The expansion of the site, coupled with the Advancia® project, will create around fifty new positions to complement the team of almost 200 employees.
An environmental project
The expansion programme has been the subject of an in-depth study into its impact on the environment. Compensatory measures at an equivalent plot of land in the La Bresle valley have been put in place, resulting, for the first time, in an environmental management plan aimed at defining the requirements to restore and maintain wetland areas.
On the occasion of the inauguration, in the presence of local authority representatives, Mr Thiaudière, Plant Manager, and Mr Menenteau, VP Operations, expressed particular thanks to Ms Laquieze, the Sub-Prefect of Dieppe, Alain Longuent, the Mayor of Le Tréport, as well as the immediate neighbours of the site for their support.
“Behind every project and every product, there is a patient. Ensuring that the innovation and quality of our products respond daily to this demand is of paramount importance to our teams.” said Marc Hämel, Managing Director.
By taking this site to the peak of technological advancement, we’re further increasing Nemera’s capacity for innovation and production to ensure that it has the resources to meet the needs of its customers and to embrace new projects.
“The new year brings the arrival of the equipment we need to manufacture next generation products in the new facility. We design, manufacture and export our products from Le Tréport to nearly one hundred countries. These are mainly spray pumps and valves for healthcare use.” added Stéphane Thiaudière, Plant Manager.
