Catalent completes purchase of pharmaceutical packaging facility in Japan

The facility will offer extensive clinical supply services

Catalent has completed the purchase of Teva-Takeda Pharmaceuticals’ packaging facility in Minakuchi, located in the Shiga prefecture of Japan.

Operating in partnership with the company’s existing Japanese clinical supply facility located in Kakegawa, the new 60,000-square-foot facility will provide customers with flexible clinical supply solutions, serving both local customers, and global biotech and pharmaceutical companies. The facility will play an important role in Catalent’s expanding Asia-Pacific network, working alongside two sites in China and one in Singapore to ensure customers’ clinical trials are well-served across the region.

The facility will offer extensive clinical supply services including access to Catalent’s FastChain demand-led supply services, primary and secondary packaging capabilities, a range of temperature options for storage and distribution, as well as clinical returns and destruction services.
