Imagine : 18,000 m² of workshops, 4,000 m² of clean rooms on nearly 10 hectares of land! Located in Pont-de-Claix, in the Isère region of France, the Becton Dickinson site is THE strategic hub of the American group.
Every year, more than 330 million glass syringes and 1,800 million piston seals are manufactured here and delivered to nearly 300 countries. These are two strategic products that require a high level of R&D and engineering, both in technology and manufacturing processes. A single "grain of sand" can jam the entire chain, leading to a total or partial shutdown of production. Inconceivable for the American giant !
Especially since Becton Dickinson intends to pursue its international growth strategy. The only solution is to review the entire utilities production and distribution chain, which is based on a multitude of small units that are very disparate from one another.
