Siegfried, a leading global Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) headquartered in Zofingen, today broke ground for its new global Research and Development (R&D) Center for Drug Substances at its site in Evionnaz, Switzerland. The new R&D Center will begin its operations in 2024 and, together with the R&D Center in Zofingen, will significantly increase Siegfried’s R&D capacity to drive future growth.

At this new facility, for which Siegfried will invest up to CHF 25 million, more than 100 highly skilled specialists will work closely with Siegfried’s customers to bring their precious innovations to industrial scale. The R&D Center will host advanced chemical and analytical facilities and state-of-the-art laboratories and will offer chemical process R&D and analytical development services for the entire Drug Substances network. With this project, Siegfried is further strengthening its site in Evionnaz, which is a key pillar within its global Drug Substances network.

Wolfgang Wienand, CEO of Siegfried: “The new R&D Center in Evionnaz will strengthen our global network and highlights our commitment to offer the most advanced research and development services to our customers. It is an important milestone in our successful growth strategy and another major step on our path to become the leader in the CDMO space.”
