Sartorius Stedim, specialised in the manufacture of sterile single-use plastic bags for the pharmaceutical industry, has announced an investment project worth 100 million euros between 2022 and 2025 that will result in the creation of 400 jobs. The jobs will be created mainly in Aubagne (Bouche-du-Rhône) with the doubling of the site's surface area, but also at its three other sites in Cergy (Oise), Dourdan (Essonne) and Lourdes (Hautes-Pyrénées). The investment, supported with €18 million by the French government as part of a call for expressions of interest called "Capacity Building", aims to accelerate and significantly increase the capacity of the sites in France, in particular to meet growing market demand.

A former recruitment of 200 employees in 2017 at Aubagne has been recorded on the ERM database.
