Aguettant is a family-owned pharmaceutical company dedicated to the development, industrial production and distribution of innovative injectable pharmaceutical specialties that meet the demands and the needs of healthcare professionals and patients.
Founded in Lyon, France in 1903, Laboratoire Aguettant’s growth has been rooted in its engagement with the medical world and its pharmaceutical expertise in injectable medication.
Our unchanging vision and our permanent efforts to reinvent ourselves have made Aguettant an innovation-oriented pharmaceutical player, built on a broad range of skills and know-how in development, modern means of industrial production and a strong reputation on the market for pharmaceutical specialties for hospitals.
All these qualities are being harnessed in the international development of our activities. We are determined to adapt our expertise to new demands, to seize opportunities on the worldwide market thanks to our know-how, and we are convinced of the importance of multiple partnerships all along the value chain, from research and development, to sales.
Both our history and our new dynamic are steeped in the values that every one of Aguettant’s employees shares and practises.
These values unite us and reflect who we are.
They are Engagement, Excellence, Integrity and Initiative.
The combination of our values and our expertise, our combativeness and our ambition, our awareness of our mission and our adaptability has made, and will continue to make, Laboratoire Aguettant a major player in injectable pharmaceutical specialties.
Our vision has not changed since we started working with specialists in hospitals over a century ago: to deliver the right treatment to all patients, no matter where they are, at the right time and under optimal conditions of safety.
We have become an integrated pharmaceutical company with a strong command of production, sales and distribution.
Today, we operate two production plants, one logistics platform and R&D laboratories located in France.
Today, this body of expertise and our DNA enable us to export our know-how onto international markets.
We do business in more than 60 countries.
In its drive for international expansion, the company has successfully adapted to the specifics of every country where it does business, in terms of both the use of our products and the regulations in force.
This strategically important corporate vision is driven by every one of our 545 employees, from the sites in the Rhône-Alpes-Auvergne region of France, to every one of our eight subsidiaries.
