Pierre Fabre Laboratories were created by pharmacist Pierre Fabre in Castres, France in the early 1960s

Business Activities



Pierre Fabre is organised in 2 departments : pharmaceutical (40% turnover) & cosmetic products (58% turnover). 

The challenges of this sector:

  • Respond to traceability challenges and strict quality standards in production
  • Enhance productivity
  • International growth and development


« Choosing ADAX (Advanced Suite for Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Operations) was evident for several reasons: Its ability to adapt to evolutions in the group, the specific adaptations tailored to pharmaceutical and dermo-cosmetics business activities, and the focus on demands of distribution. »

The immediate benefits of ADAX


"We designed a Core Model under a single infrastructure thanks to the versatility of Microsoft Dynamics AX and ADAX that was leveraged by the TVH Consulting expertise and a perfect collaboration amongst project teams. A mere 11 months later, we deployed in Lisbon, Portugal. TVH Consulting and Pierre Fabre deployed ADAX and the Core Model in Portugal, Canada, Italy, Scandanavia, the Middle East, and Chili with excellent frameworks.
