De Dietrich Process Systems' mission is to contribute to improving human health while preserving the planet by providing the chemical and pharmaceutical industries with technological solutions optimised in terms of safety, quality, reliability, cleanability, energy consumption and sustainability. We provide complete solutions for better containment of operations to meet our priority objectives of operational safety, operator health and welfare, product quality and environmental protection. We also support the green chemistry industry with a range of specific equipment to meet their needs, such as our waste recycling solutions and our plant-based chemistry solutions.
Our ambition is to set the Group's future on a path of sustainable and profitable growth, continuing the century-long history of Innovation, Passion and Solutions that defines De Dietrich.
Jacques Moulin, De Dietrich's CEO, said: "It is a great satisfaction and responsibility for our company to have obtained the confidence of the government and therefore to be able to accelerate our project from this day on.
In a context of global competition, our objective is to create a test centre in a secure ATEX zone, to develop and market innovative processes:
- extraction of natural ingredients,
- filtration and drying of active pharmaceutical ingredients,
- handling and characterisation of powders.
This is a strategic investment for the drug production sector which is being rebuilt in France. Our customers are for example SEQENS, MINAKEM, AXYNTIS, SANOFI, PFIZER, ASTRA ZENECA, CORDEN PHARMA, PIERRE FABRE, etc...
"We hope to become the technological leader in Europe thanks to this tool, and consequently to obtain new market shares in France and abroad, and to create new direct and indirect jobs in the Auxois region, where we have been present for many years, with the exemplary support of the elected representatives, the State and regional services, not forgetting BPI France," added Frédéric Guichard, the group's Development Director.
The De Dietrich TECH LAB will be operational in early 2022.
