Our story is about the fusing, over time, of a family culture and capabilities in the human and animal health business. Jacques Poignon and his elder son Thierry established the Intersanté company in Sion, Switzerland in 1982.
As a textile engineer, Jacques Poignon developed the activity towards disposable non-woven textiles for the human health industry and provided its clients with medical devices and innovative wound management products.
Later, his sons introduced the company into new fast growing markets: Thierry, a veterinarian, now develops the equine health business.
Frédéric, a pharmacist, supervises research and development and manages the regulatory affairs. He is a specialist in medical equipment and devices and turn-key medical projects.
