An entrepreneurial and human adventure

More than 20 years of experience and continuous growth

<p><strong>[1998]</strong></p> <p>Foundation of Provence Technologies, a&nbsp;<strong>research and development chemistry laboratory</strong>, resulting from the association of the 2 founding partners: Michel FERAUD and Christophe BARALOTTO.

The company thus builds its reputation in different fields such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and agrochemicals.</p>
<p><strong>[SINCE 2003]</strong></p> <p>Given its solid financial structure, Provence Technologies launches several internal research programs.
