Project Progress

12th September 2022:

  • Groundbreaking of our MITOSE expansion
  • Beginning of the excavation phase

Let’s hear from them

This new expansion project pursues objectives related to strategic positioning and capacity increase in order to meet the concrete and growing needs of the pharmaceutical sector, in terms of expertise and support. With a total budget of 20 million euros, we are not only investing in a building but resolutely in our value proposition and our commitment to public health. This new infrastructure, along with the Knowledge Management programme and Quality Assistance Pharma Academy, will allow us to implement an ambitious plan related to the development and training of our employees in pharmaceutical, regulatory, scientific and analytical matters in order to always better support our clients.

Philippe Draux CEO
Philippe Draux Chief Executive Officer

This expansion project will allow us to grow our talent, currently numbering 230 team members, to a total capacity of 350 and to dedicate 3,000 m² to the training, the development of their business as well as interpersonal skills, and the well-being of our team. At the same time, we are increasing our operational capacities by 50% in order to meet the growing demand of our clients and to continue to develop our expertise and services dedicated to more emerging markets such as messenger RNA, products of cell and gene therapies, and viral vectors.”

Mitose will allow us to increase significantly our capacity to deliver analytical services and thus to address our client’s expectations in an efficient and effective manner. This increase of capacity in laboratory surfaces, along with the infrastructure dedicated to human resources, is a major element in maintaining the trust that our clients have placed in our ability to support them in their developments.

Mitose will make available an infrastructure outside of the operational scope that will allow us more flexibility to structure training using modern tools in parallel with a Knowledge Management approach. Mitose will enable us to regroup our recruitment, HR management, and training missions in order to provide everyone the optimal support throughout their development at Quality Assistance. Not to mention new areas for team members to exchange their views, to relax, or to exercise their athletic genes! Certainly a great project ahead!
