Specialist in Industrial Transfers

Thépenier Pharma & Cosmetics assists you in your operations of industrial transfers and complex analytical transfers.


Our industrial and analytical development teams carry out feasibility studies, scale-ups, the adaptation of production series and analytical processes to our equipment and ensure their validation. We manage all the associated ICH stability studies.


We generate the reports necessary to the compilation of the regulatory variation files to be submitted to the regulatory authorities.


Subsequently, we ensure the maintenance of the validated status of your products (periodic revalidations, product quality review, etc.).


GMP and FDA Certified Pharmaceutical Manufacturer

These certifications enable us to produce and deliver medicines (Px and OTC) and medical devices for most of the world's major markets in human and veterinary pharmacy, in full compliance with the most demanding quality standards.


We are flexible and can adapt to the specific requirements of our various customers if necessary.


Your expectations are rightly high. In order to achieve excellence, we constantly innovate and invest in order to meet your requirements and adapt to constant changes of global industry standards and best practices.


Consequently, Thépenier Pharma & Cosmetics displays one of the lowest non-quality rates in the pharmaceutical subcontracting market. For the last 10 years, this rate has been constantly below 0.5%.


In addition, the modernity of our equipment, the investment culture of Thépenier Pharma & Cosmetics and the deployment of the most advanced methods of continuous improvement (5S, kaizen, lean, TPM, etc.) allow us improve our productivity rate year after year.


In practice, between 2013 and 2020, productivity in our factories has been multiplied by a factor of 2.4.


All of our pharmaceutical lines are equipped with serialisation modules. No additional financial costs will be charged for this.


We have partnered with Tracelink to ensure that your serialisation requirements are fully compliant with the various related national regulations and to ensure the smooth distribution of your medicines.


Internalised Physico-Chemical and Microbiological Tests

Our Laboratory can carry out all the physicochemical and microbiological analysis required by your MA (Marketing Authorisations), thanks to state-of-the-art equipment (HPLG, CPG, IR, UV, chromato, etc.), all managed via a LIMS to guarantee the integrity of all handled data.


We can also carry out all the analysis required for stability studies and the validation of our manufacturing and cleaning processes.

Proactivity and Regulatory Compliance

We are constantly monitoring legal and regulatory developments relating to our discipline in France, Europe and around the world.


In particular, we can support your MA developments or your regulatory filings with the ANSM (Agence Nationale de Sécurité du Médicament), EMA (European Medicines Agency) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
