CONSTRUCTION OF JOINT HEADQUARTERS FOR SANOFI-PASTEUR/MERIAL IN LYON
In the center of the Lyon-Gerland Biodistrict, a renowned world-class biotech cluster, Sanofi will bring together the headquarters of Sanofi Pasteur and Merial in a single building in Lyon, avenue Tony Garnier in 2016.
The project, named “Sanofi Lyon Campus”, includes the construction of two real estate developments nearby in order to bring together the employees in Sanofi’s 7 sectors of excellence and foster synergies between the skills of each cluster:
– The Carteret development, slated for completion in mid-2015, will be home to the support departments of the Sanofi Group in Lyon (Purchasing, Operations, Human Resources, Finance, etc.), totaling 1,000 employees.
– The Tony Garnier development, slated for completion in late 2016, will bring together the operational teams (researchers and laboratory staff) of Sanofi Pasteur and Merial, totaling more than 700 employees in all.
A project that confirms the group’s determination to remain in Lyon for the long term.
