Title: Silab Opens Third Production Unit in France
  • Article

Silab has opened the third production unit at its Brive-la-Gaillarde site in Corrèze, France. This is the fifth such inauguration since the company was founded in 1984.

This new 4,500 m2 workshop enables the company to double its production capacity of biological active molecules. It includes three production lines together with high-tech equipment that combines flexibility and automation. Computerized management of the production process (meeting the GMP cosmetics standard) guarantees reliability and traceability at every key stage. This unit has been designed in accordance with an ecologically responsible policy aligned with a high level of safety and consistent with the existing industrial facility, which now covers a total area of 10,000 m².

The company's socially and environmentally friendly practices include: environmentally-friendly production processes, use of water as a solvent, optimization of its recycling, commissioning of a new on-site wastewater treatment plant and reduction of energy consumption in order to minimize its environmental footprint

With this new production unit, the company is pursuing its sustainable development strategy by continuing to focus on innovation and human skills, coupled with its strong founding values, namely independence, excellence and quality.
