Sanofi-Aventis and Famar have entered an agreement under which Famar will integrate Sanofi’s plant in Madrid, into its network of 11 sites across Europe. The plant produces solid and sterile forms including freeze-drying, and currently supplies more than 50 markets. All employees of the plant will be transferred.

The agreement expands the collaboration between the two companies, which began in 2001 when Famar acquired Sanofi’s plant in L’Aigle, France. Both companies will partner to develop the manufacturing activity of the plant. Sanofi will continue to source certain products from the site through a supply agreement. Famar will invest in developing and expanding the plant’s sterile manufacturing capacities, as well as exploring the external manufacturing market in Spain.
