The SEPPIC site at Castres features research laboratories and a production plant.
Primarily dedicated to the health and beauty sectors, the plant, located on an 8-hectare site, employs 300 people and manufactures 600 different products. It operates in synergy with our R&D laboratories located nearby.
The Castres site specializes in the production of:

- 3 gas emissions treatment units.
The Castres site has been awarded certifications in line with the latest standards for quality (ISO 9001), environmental management (ISO 14001) and occupational health/safety (OHSAS 18001).
The Castres site complies with the current best production practices (European BPF, part 2), as approved by the National Agency for Medicines Security (ANSM) for vaccine adjuvants and injectable surfactants for human use.
