Global veterinary health company specialized in pharmaceutical products and vaccines

CEVA Santé Animale develops, manufactures and distributes animal health products. The company’s main expertise lies within the anti-invectives, vaccines and reproduction control devices areas. CEVA operates in all key European markets and has established a strong presence in international growing markets such as Eastern and Central Europe, Middle East and Turkey, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. 

The company is headquartered in Libourne near Bordeaux, France.

CEVA was acquired by the IK 2000 Fund from PAI Partners in September 2003. It was then sold in June 2007 to its management, associated with a consortium of investors grouping Euromezzanine, Natexis Industrie and Natixis Investissement.
