The international pharmaceutical group, Zydus, already a sponsor of the club, has just added to their commitment to the Catalan Dragons for the 2011 Super League season. The Dragons will play with the Zydus logo on their chests for the home matches. “For Zydus, the mission of a laboratory is more than simply the provision of proprietary medicines. By developing and manufacturing generic medicines, we wish to contribute to the ease of access to care for the greatest number of people, and this worldwide. We also commit ourselves to acting responsibly at environmental and social levels, as well on the medical front everywhere where we are present. Zydus laboratories have also made alliances with other large pharmaceutical groups, making it possible to develop innovating products, for example:
Schering AG in the area of women's health
Boehringer Ingelheim in gastro-enterology
Viatris in the area of asthma
Baxter in cancer treatment
Hospira with injectable products for oncology
Today we are working with the Catalan Dragons because the values of this club, and rugby league, correspond to the values of our laboratory: honesty, compliance with the rules, and support for the partners…. health and preventive medicine. Moreover the ongoing relations that we have with your Vice President and pharmacist Philippe Arcens reinforce our desire to be on the side of pharmacy and to support local events. Finally we are hoping for a beautiful rugby season for the Catalan Dragons and the sharing of powerful events on the pitch.” declared Karl Parance, chairman of Zydus France.
I am pleased with the partnership signed with the pharmaceutical laboratory Zydus, who become the official shirt sponsor for 2011. The existence of many similarities between our two entities is surely not strange in this relationship. This young, dynamic laboratory is not ceasing to increase market share in an increasingly demanding and competitive environment. Thank you for your support and here's hoping for a season full of mutual victories.” Added Philippe Arcens, vice-president of the club.
Our club gains a faithful partner, Zydus having already supported us in previous seasons. Putting in place of this financial arrangement makes them our principal sponsor for all our home matches. Well aware of the positive spinoffs from this win/win partnership, we will endeavour to wear the colours of Zydus with pride and to present their image in our future victories.” concluded Christophe Jouffret, Managing Director of the Catalan franchise.
