Discover our new building at our Swiss manufacturing plant

A Fusion of Swiss and Japanese Architecture

The construction of this state-of-the-art facility began in March 2020 and has since been completed, with employees moving in throughout in 2022 as the finishing touches were added. The building’s design is a harmonious blend of traditional Swiss Valais architecture and Japanese aesthetics, reflecting TRB’s extensive history in the industry and global reach. Visitors and partners will be greeted by the building’s striking charcoal-black façade, which was achieved using the Japanese weatherproofing technique of Yaki-Sugi.

The building has both a visually appealing design and several technical benefits. It is well insulated and has been optimized to reduce energy expenditure, making use of a system of microperforated plates that circulate hot or cold fluid depending on the season, resulting in lower consumption no matter the time of year.

Solar Powering Sustainability

Our dedication to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency has been a fundamental part of our company’s values long before the construction of this new building. The solar panels installed on the roof of one of our factory buildings have proven to be highly effective, generating between 15-20% of the electricity used on site, reducing our carbon footprint and demonstrating our commitment to sustainable practices.

Our new building is a testament to our company’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. Discover more about our Swissmedic’s Authorized and GMP Qualified Production Site

How TRB is proactively addressing the new European Medical Devices Regulation (MDR)

The new European Medical Devices Regulation (MDR) just came into effect, with immediate application for new medical devices, generating an interesting debate. Some players welcome this major change which will align national regulations, and believe it will help to remove from the market several medical devices with limited evidence and quality control.

Others highlight that the lack of enforcement of the directives in the past rather than the gaps in regulations originated a critical situation and therefore the need for a new MDR. Still others argue that some of the new, more restrictive regulations might be detrimental to innovation. For example, the classification of most medical software has shifted to class IIa or higher, thereby putting many start-ups and medical applications under pressure.

Irrespective of any personal opinion with regard to this regulation, the more demanding reviewing processes are meant to ensure safer and more effective solutions to the patient’s health conditions.

As a non-exhaustive list of the key changes impacting our products and dossiers we can quote:

  • Risk classification of devices and scope of the Regulations
  • Clinical investigations and performance studies
  • Obligations and regulatory requirements of economic operators
  • Traceability
  • Identification
  • Labelling and instructions for use


You will be able to find a more comprehensive overview on the changes in the Factsheet for healthcare professionals and health institutions, published by the European Commission.

As a Swiss pharmaceutical company, it is our duty to meet some of the highest quality standards in the world and stay one step ahead. That is why we have taken a proactive stance towards being MDR compliant. Our OSTENIL® Line, focused on rheumatology and tendinopathy, received MDR approval and new registrations for OSTENIL®, OSTENIL® Plus, OSTENIL® Mini and OSTENIL® Tendon from the 1st semester of 2022.

In a similar fashion, although we still have a few years until the deadline to switch our VISMED® ophthalmology line over to MDR, our regulatory departments are working extensively to make sure our products will be ready for conformity assessments as well as seamlessly available on the European market.

We are pleased to participate in World Arthritis Day

World Arthritis Day, referred to as WAD, aims at increasing disease awareness and knowledge on rheumatological conditions around the world. Current estimates list more than 200 rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD), but their burden is largely underestimated by the general population. Consequently, a large proportion of patients are either not diagnosed or wait for extended periods of time before consulting their healthcare professionals.

More than 100.000.000 people worldwide suffer from rheumatological symptoms. These symptoms directly impact the quality of life of the patients and their professional activity. The inability to work reduces individuals’ self-esteem and increases their dependence on social assistance, family and friends.

Medical education has for a long time considered RMDs as second priority conditions, which means that symptoms might go unnoticed, misdiagnosed, or mistreated if people don’t have access to rheumatologists, nurses, physical therapists, or other healthcare professionals specifically trained in the field of RMD. As a result, people living with a rheumatic or musculoskeletal disease often have to face their condition alone and are lacking information on their symptoms, diagnosis and treatment options.

World Arthritis Day is intended to raise awareness on the existence and impact of RMD worldwide. This Day is an opportunity for all communities around the world to come together and speak with one voice to bring the much-needed messages to all audiences.

Over the past 20 years, TRB Chemedica has focused its rheumatological activities on osteoarthritis, the most prevalent joint disorder especially in middle-aged and elderly people.
