Establishment of Shionogi Pharma

The new company Shionogi Pharma Co., Ltd., was established on October 1, 2018, to integrate the manufacturing-related functions of the Shionogi Group and began operations on April 1, 2019. In addition to pharmaceutical manufacturing functions, Shionogi Pharma is equipped with manufacturing and sales capabilities with functions in quality assurance and in supply chain, sales, and operations management.
