Seeking ever-higher quality

Working to maintain leading-drug status
Once a drug has been approved for use, it is the role of the staff at our production plants, and of the technological development units that support those plants, to ensure the smooth realization of mass-production. At Astellas, we have drawn up our own standards of good manufacturing practice (GMP), which meet globally accepted quality standards. These rigorous quality control standards cover not only the production equipment and processes employed, but also methods of raw material procurement and storage, staff training, and logistics services including delivery. At the same time, through the use of advanced factory automation systems and computerized production control systems, we have constructed a system of manufacturing that effectively balances the twin requirements of low cost and high quality.
We take great pride in delivering Astellas' high-quality drugs - wherever they are needed, whenever they are needed. The production of the principal constituents of drugs in drug substance form is carried out at plants in Japan and the Republic of Ireland, while the production of finished drugs is carried out by a network of plants spanning the globe from Japan to the United States, Europe, and China.
At Astellas' production facilities, we work constantly to ensure the uninterrupted supply of safe drugs to those who need them.
