On July 26, we received in Carros Olivier Dussopt, Public accounts deputy minister and Bernard Gonzalez, prefect for the Alpes-Maritimes (region where Virbac headquarters are located). This visit is part of the French government's recovery plan to support industrial investment projects in six strategic sectors at national and territorial level. Our company is a winner of the call for project “France recovery industry” plan (territorial level) : a €900,000 grant has been awarded to us for future investments aimed at making our Carros industrial site a center of excellence in biology. We also received a grant of €500,000 from the Region for this same project.
The program of this visit: presentation of the Virbac group, the Carros site, the vaccine production unit (Bio4) and details on our future industrial projects. A symbolic plaque was presented to us by the deputy minister on this occasion.
