Region Europe

The Region Europe Sales reached €1,118 billion, representing overall growth of 7.8%.

2017 represented a milestone for Europe and for the Group. After a long journey we launched Trimbow, the first triple combination for Chronic Ostructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). We have entered the field of rare diseases with the launch of Holoclar®, the acquisition of Procisby® and the registration of Lamzede®. Together with the positive development of the other areas of activity, this has allowed the Region to continue to grow significantly and to strengthen our leadership position in the sectors in which we are present.

A nice recognition for a great team effort.
