The large pharmaceutical laboratories and the nuclear sector constitute the base of PIERCAN's customers. With the diversification of its activities (technical parts), PIERCAN has also broadened the sectors of activity concerned. PIERCAN also works with the sports industry (composite articles), medicine (innovative surgery) and the high-tech industry.

Pharmaceutical laboratories

Pharmaceutical companies represent 35% of the PIERCAN business.
This is a sector that has been booming over the past fifteen years with the practice of insulator work, which is becoming more and more widespread among the various pharmaceutical groups worldwide.
The PIERCAN innovation makes it possible to propose solutions particularly adapted to the pharmaceutical environment (Securised glove ports).

The nuclear sector has been the historical activity with which PIERCAN has really developed its "glove box gloves" activity. Since the 1960s and the first production reactor in Marcoule, up to the advent of Mox in France as well as in the world, PIERCAN has always accompanied the employees in this particularly exposed sector. Today, PIERCAN offers gloves that combine flexibility and resistance and are particularly well suited to work in glove boxes under ionizing radiation or in a chemical atmosphere.

Animal health

For decades, Piercan has been producing numerous elastomeric elements for animal reproduction: artificial vaginas for rabbits, bull caps. These products are part of PIERCAN's core business: dipped elastomers. Since a few years, following the acquisition of the Plastunion company, Piercan also manufactures flexible isolators for biomedical research and animal confinement. These isolators guarantee a tight intervention space with a controlled atmosphere. Thus, PIERCAN widens its offer and proposes from now on a whole of diversified solutions to the sector of the animal health.
