Centrally Located in the Life Science Cluster of Northwest Switzerland

Small yet Outstanding – Pharmapark Siegfried, Zofingen

28.12.2015 Pharmapark Siegfried may not be one of the largest, but it is certainly one of the most attractive pharma parks with a long tradition.


Siegfried, founded in 1873, operated as a fully integrated research-based pharmaceutical company until 1991, and today it is the leading CMO partner for the global pharmaceutical sector with nine production sites in six countries.  This is the spirit that the companies located in the Pharmapark Siegfried and their customers benefit from. The life science cluster of northwest Switzerland takes the lead worldwide. It represents a large reservoir of skilled and well-trained employees in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, which is decisive for the success of every company operating in this field.  Siegfried is world-class also in terms of compliance. Industry-related inspections by the FDA, the American regulating authority, have for more than 10 years resulted in „no action indicated“. On site, an effective fire brigade enjoys the support of all companies operating in the pharmaceutical park and ensures the highest level of safety.

In addition to Siegfried, two pharmaceutical companies, Celgene Chemicals and Arena Pharmaceuticals, run a production facility on the Pharmapark Siegfried site. The cooperation is tailor-made and not subject to any fixed parameters. The individual needs of the Pharmapark companies are identified and met accordingly.

Bilfinger Industrial Services Schweiz AG is responsible for maintenance, repairs, issues concerning safety, health and environment, and security services.  This well-respected company is active at other Siegfried locations as well and enjoys wide experience in this field.  More than 50 staff members work for Bilfinger at the Zofingen site. Supply and waste disposal is carried out by EBM Industriecontracting GmbH, a subsidiary of the EBM Group in Münchenstein. EBM provides all utilities, such as power, gas, steam and pressurized air as well as resources such as water.  The company carries out waste disposal, either by means of the company-owned canalization system or to external buyers.
