A company dedicated
to animal health
Last April, Jean-Pierre Dick and his sponsors announced their return to monohull racing with the goal of taking part in the Ocean Masters events between 2015 and 2017, the highlight of which will be the Vendée Globe 2016. Designed by Verdier VPLP, StMichel-Virbac will be built at the Vannes Multiplast boatyard. The new boat will be launched next summer.
Virbac is the world's eighth largest pharmaceutical company operating solely in the field of animal health. To ensure its continued growth in the ruminant market, Virbac opened the 4th September Virbac 8, its new production site in Carros (Alpes-Maritimes, France) which will manufacture sterile, mainly injectable, forms for ruminants.
In 2014, the innovative Flexibag® and Farmpack® products from Virbac were awarded three prizes: the 'Janus de la Santé' award for an environmentally-friendly design, the Pharmapack award and a "Sommet d’Or" award. In Flexibag® and Farmpack®, Virbac offer the first truly successful ergonomic design for simplified anti-parasite treatment of cattle and sheep, one which also improves productivity in the stock-rearing sector.
Customer driven innovation
