AES Laboratoires Group


Established in 1980 by its CEO, Alain Le Roch, AES Laboratoires Group is a leading French producer of instruments and agents used to detect contaminants such as bacteria, viruses or poisons for the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries. At the time of Abénex’s acquisition, the company focused on traditional, rapid and sensitive microbiological analysis, and the development of molecular-biological techniques. AES benefitted from a strong technological expertise and a diversified offering. AES was also the largest minority shareholder in a listed complementary business: Chemunex.
