50 Years of Human Adventure
Human adventure lies behind all entrepreneurial ventures.
From the outset bioMérieux has brought together men and women to serve a highly demanding humanist cause. Exploring uncharted territories, recognizing limits but seeking to exceed them, taking pride in the path travelled and dreaming of the journey that lies ahead: such are the foundations of a human adventure, which has continued unabated for half a century.
Our efforts have been strengthened along the way by adding new partners, whose experience has enhanced our expertise in research, production, quality control, and distribution.
Today, our pioneering spirit is carried on by around 10,000 employees around the world.
bioMérieux among the top 4 most attractive companies in France
At the eighth edition of the Randstad Awards, held in 2017, bioMérieux was deemed the fourth most attractive company in France by members of the general public.
In late 2016, 7,042 people aged 18 to 65 years were surveyed to measure the relative appeal (i.e. the perception of individuals who would want to work for an employer of which they have direct knowledge) of 250 companies operating in France.
“This prize is recognition for our company culture, which is both entrepreneurial and respectful of our employees. It shows that we can be innovative and effective in economic terms, while ensuring that top priority is given to the well-being of the men and women who work for our company."
Michel Baguenault, General Secretary
