Lyon, France, 18 December 2018 – Another promising partnership has been brought on its way for pharma and biotech manufacturers in France, Belgium and Switzerland using Werum’s PAS-X MES to optimize their manufacturing. To further expand the PAS-X Service Partner network of Werum IT Solutions, the world’s leading supplier of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) for Pharma & Biotech and the French-based company SPC Consultants signed a mutual agreement to offer extensive MBR services.

SPC Consultants is specialized in supporting French pharma and biotech manufacturers in project management, validation of computerized systems and their maintenance. As a PAS-X Endorsed Service Partner, SPC Consultants will provide support to Werum customers in France, Belgium and Switzerland in the field of MBR design, support and verification. The partnership will be extended mid-term to additional activities.

“With the increase of our business on the French market we extend our local services capacity accordingly. The partnership with SPC Consultants gives us this opportunity. They are already well-known by our customers and recognized for their high quality of work. I am convinced that this is a win-win-win situation for our pharma and biotech customers, for SPC Consultants and for Werum IT Solutions”, says Marc Meyer, Managing Director at Werum IT Solutions France.

Thierry Lacombe, CEO of the SPC Group, adds: “As independent player of the MES market in France, SPC Group is eager to collaborate with the main MES vendors. Our strong and historical positioning within the pharmaceutical sector has naturally led us to build a non-exclusive partnership with Werum IT Solutions, whose solution is clearly a reference for the sector.”

PAS-X Endorsed Service Partners meet all requirements of Werum's PAS-X Service Partner Program. The main objective is to offer the same quality and competence of services to Werum customers all over the world – through reliable, experienced and certified partners. The Service Partners need to have comprehensive PAS-X knowledge, participate at PAS-X trainings on a regular basis, possess experience in the regulated industry and use a quality management system. The certification has to be renewed on a regular basis.
