When Chobei Takeda I established his medicine distribution business in Osaka in 1781, he gained a reputation for his dedication to providing quality products and services.
240 years later, we feel great humility in knowing that from those modest beginnings our medicines, many of which continue to be manufactured in Japan, now reach patients in over 80 countries and territories worldwide.
Knowing of the relief that a single medicine can have upon the lives of not only patients, but entire families and communities, we are driven to pursue the discovery and development of new treatments.
Our scientists are assisted by the latest cutting edge technologies, and supported by the combined insights and experience of our entire research community.
We put the patient at the center of everything we do as we strive towards better health for people worldwide, through leading innovation in medicine.
