It was in 1904, in France, that Laboratoires Gilbert was born, when the botanist pharmacist Alexandre Gilbert created the Willow leaf cutting plaster. A legacy perpetuated for 3 generations.
In 1962 Jacques Batteur, pharmacist of origin, bought and implanted Laboratoires Gilbert in the city of Hérouville Saint-Clair in Normandy, his heart region.
The company experienced an exponential boom under the leadership of Laurent Batteur, who succeeded his father in 1974. Creation and buyout of companies, industrial investment during his 25 years at the head of the group, the workforce has grown from 20 employees to more than 800, the turnover of 400,000 euros to 180 million euros. A more than positive assessment for this builder-entrepreneur, attached to the independence of the company, who has always made a point to honor that the company remains 100% family.
Today, his sons, Cédric and Romain have taken over the reins of the family group and have made it a priority to expand the laboratory in France and internationally.
