Partnering with Takeda

At Takeda, partnerships are at the heart of what we do. Almost one third* of our revenues come from partnerships and strategic acquisitions, and that will grow to over 50 percent by 2015*. We have significant experience in developing mutually beneficial discovery, development and commercial relationships. Our dedicated alliance management function fosters strong relationships throughout the product life cycle, from early development to late stage. Our teams apply Takeda's core values of perseverance, honesty and fairness to each collaboration.

Takeda has always valued innovation. We have a history of acquiring companies with strong scientific platforms and expertise – Syrrx(now Takeda California), Paradigm Pharmaceuticals (now Takeda Cambridge and Takeda Singapore) and Millennium Pharmaceuticals (now Millennium: The Takeda Oncology Company). We invest in them, allowing them to flourish and achieve their full potential.

Takeda has a proven track record in Research and Development, having brought leading treatments to market for diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders and cancer. We spend more than 20 percent of our revenues on R&D, one of the highest investments in the industry.

We also have a global and highly respected expertise in product commercialization in our core therapeutic areas. Our acquisition and integration of Nycomed has not only strengthened our pan-European platform, but also expanded our sales channels into emerging markets, offering integrated global product development.

Our highly efficient and adaptable worldwide manufacturing network has the ability to produce diverse products applying a wide range of technologies, from API to production and packaging of solid, semi-solid, liquid and injectable pharmaceuticals. With the know-how and the capacity of our manufacturing plants throughout the world, we are close to our customers in far-reaching markets.

Collectively these capabilities mean that, with our partners, we are uniquely positioned to develop new products and to commercialize existing products in markets around the world. We can strive together to achieve the best outcomes for our patients.
