Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company08/10/2012
On 12 September 2012, exactly 10 years to the day of the inauguration of Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company, Servier CEO Jean-Philippe Seta presided over the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company, in the presence of Chinese officials from SFDA ([China] State Food and Drug Administration) and TEDA (Tianjin Economic Development Area), as well as a select group of top managers from Servier China, Servier Asia-Pacific, and Servier Headquarters in France, and the entire staff of Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company. On this occasion a commemorative white stone was unveiled on the Company grounds engraved with the following motto in red Chinese characters:
“Committed to Ethics and Research with Faith in the Future”
During the ceremony, special tribute was paid to Mrs Zhang Jian Min, who has headed the Company from its very inception and was hailed as the lynchpin of Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company’s dynamism and success. Mrs Zhang Jian Min, together with 14 other staff, were presented with a 10-year medal in recognition of their achievements and loyalty. From its beginnings in 2002, Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company’s workforce has grown to 75, and will soon pass the 100 mark, and produces each year upwards of 25 million boxes of Servier’s major drugs, principally Diamicron MR, Vastarel 20 mg and Vastarel MR 35 mg, Coversyl 4 and 8 mg and soon Coversyl 5 and 10 mg, with a potential of 40 million boxes. The bulk of this production is currently destined for China, with 1 million boxes for export in Asia. In the near future Daflon 500, Coveram, Valdoxan, and Procoralan are also to be produced, and ultimately 100% of Servier drugs consumed in Asia will be produced by Servier Tianjin Pharmaceutical Company.
