Hovione has opened a new sales and customer support office in Osaka, Japan, underlining the importance of the region for the Portuguese manufacturer of active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients.
The firm said Japan is a strategic market where Hovione is growing both its off patent API and its contract manufacturing businesses.
The new office will support customer relations and help in the development of new business within Japan, while reinforcing Hovione’s global position, said Hovione.
'We are delighted to be opening our office in Osaka. Hovione’s advanced technologies and focus on quality gives us an excellent fit with the Japanese market so we wanted to have a local presence offering the best possible support to our customers,' said Kristine Senft, Hovione’s Vice-President of Marketing and Sales.
The Osaka office will be led by Yasushi Usuda, a Japanese national with 20 years of international business experience.
