Ceva's manufacturing policy reflects our overall strategy to be glocal, i.e. to achieve the synergies and excellence driven by global plants and then to ensure that we "fan this out" and achieve the same standards in our plants situated close to local markets in order to ensure maximum reactivity for our customers.
Ceva has 4 main international sites with 19 regional manufacturing sites, in several locations (particularly for biological products). R&D and industrial groups are close at hand, to ensure that the transition from final development into full production can be managed across cross-functional teams.
Ceva’s extensive geographical coverage means that we can provide our markets with products and services that are adapted to local specifications and demand.
Manufacturing in South Africa
Ceva South Africa has one of the regional manufacturing sites currently producing mainly for the local ruminant market, with a few exceptions of exports to other African countries where acaricides are concerned. The production unit, under the guidance of the Production Pharmacist, has the ability to produce ecto and endoparasiticides in drench, injectable and pour-on formulations. The unit is capable of producing a range of pack sizes from 50 mℓ to 200 Lt. All manufacturing is conducted with full component tracibility, enabling Ceva to respond effectively to any product queries that may arise. In-house production ensures that Ceva has complete control over the quality of our products.
All our products are manufactured according to strict quality specifications, throughout the process. This includes the verification of the quality of all raw materials and packaging, through to the finished product. Independent laboratories are used to test and confirm the quality of the products manufactured, before being distributed to the end consumer. The fact that our vaccines are manufactured overseas, makes the cold chain process critical to ensure that all our vaccines are received, packed and dispatched to reach the end-user at 100% of their specifications. This is an integral part of Ceva South Africa's quality assurance programme.
