Since January 2021, the majority shareholder is the investment fund CAPITAL EXPORT with the objective to consolidate the development of VERDOT Ips² internationally.
Previously, VERDOT Ips² was a part of the French group SPLG (Goavec, ETA, Servinox, PMS, LMPA…).
The purpose of VERDOT team is to provide its expertise in design and realization of purification equipment for several Biopharma projects and other industries, starting from the development phase to the industrial stage.
The 11 years spent into by Bio-Rad Laboratories Group between 2003 and 2014 led VERDOT Ips² to a refocusing on the LPLC industrial equipment with a pilot scale incursion.
VERDOT Ips² has been able to accentuate the experience and knowledge acquired over more than 60 years:
- In the 1950’s: a group of turners/millers experts in a workshop directed by Mr. Charles Verdot and dedicated to mechanics subcontracting for MICHELIN in particular
- In the 1970’s, the workshop activities specialized in stainless steel and plastic materials to manufacture prototypes, subassemblies and assemblies in very small series.
- From the 1980’s, the company leaned increasingly towards cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries, especially with closed loop water systems.
- In the mid 1990’s, using the expertise that was acquired over thirty years, a research unit was created to develop our own equipment. Three lines of products were offered:
- Weighing and packing equipment
- Closed loop water systems including the technical room and the vat room
- Industrial equipment for purification processes, mainly by low pressure liquid chromatography technology (LPLC)
The values that gather us and on which we rely on every day to adapt to the expectations and needs of our customers are:
Experience, Knowledge, Businesses expertise, Reactivity,
Flexibility, Agility, Sense of customer service
To these values, individual qualities are added such as:
Commitment, Generosity, Ethics,

Made in France
From Design to Quality Control, VERDOT® equipment are part of a local manufacturing process.
Our workshops and offices are located in Riom, in the department of Puy-de-Dôme, in the middle of France. All our equipment are designed on site by the team of designers and engineers of our Research Unit. The parts are manufactured in our mechanics and boiler workshops, or subcontracted locally. 96% of the components are supplied in Europe and 4% in the United States.
Integration and quality control are 100% made into our premises in Riom. Our supervision software and PLC are designed by our engineers and local partners.
