Groundbreaking Ceremony at Takeda in Neuchâtel

Takeda plans to invest more than CHF 200 million at its biotechnology manufacturing site in Neuchatel to increase the production capacity. With this significant investment, Takeda is strengthening the Neuchâtel production site and ensuring patients with rare diseases continue to receive life-changing treatments. The investment includes two projects:

  • A new building with a new filling line with a high degree of automation.
  • An extension of an existing facility building for new bioreactors to increase production capacity.

We are celebrating the groundbreaking ceremony together with representatives from politics, society and economy on June 15, 2022, 11.30am to 2.30pm at Takeda in Neuchâtel.
