VWR continues to invest through both development and the acquisition of market-leading laboratory and

REACh directive plus, the Global Harmonised system of hazardous chemical labelling and other legislation,
as it arises. VWR has also invested heavily in quality improvement systems and process excellence whilst
continuing to demonstrate our commitment to sustainability.
Ongoing investment in production facilities
VWR production sites in France and Belgium have been recently expanded to include new automated and
semi-automated filing lines to enhance our capability, flxibility and improve service levels. This
investment includes extensive redevelopment of the Quality Control facilities at the VWR Haasrode site in
Belgium. The laboratory is now over twice its original size with dedicated instrumental analysis,
biochemical analysis and wet chemistry areas.
As chemistry develops with ppb and ppt level analysis commonplace, tighter and tighter reproducible
specifiations are required. At VWR we test every batch to guaranteed parameters because we don’t
believe that typical results are good enough. New instrumentation and continuous professional
development of our scientifi staff ensure that we stay ahead of your needs and our sites are regularly
audited by our customers with very successful results. VWR use cleanrooms working to ISO standard 7 for
the filing of Pharmacopoeia-quality products.
