What makes us different?

Since its establishment in 1979, Otsuka Europe has embraced Otsuka’s global ethos of ‘super people not super computers’, Otsuka's 600 European employees focus their passion and energy on ensuring that patients in Europe have access to Otsuka’s innovative products and medical devices in our key therapy areas of mental health, endocrinology, nephrology, gastroenterology and oncology.  We employ highly talented people who share our vision and are dedicated to delivering best-in-class products for diseases that are difficult to treat. Clinical development, commercialisation and sales and marketing operations in France, Germany, Italy, the Nordic region, Spain, Switzerland and the UK have established offices that are supported by Otsuka's European regional office, based just outside London. Otsuka Europe Development and Commercialisation Ltd. (OEDC) are based at the same location (with a branch office in Frankfurt) and was established in 2013 to ensure the successful development and commercialisation of our products in Europe. In addition to these established businesses, Otsuka Europe manages its other European operations, selling products through a number of partnerships and distributors. 
It is the passion, drive, diversity, creativity and unconventional thinking of our people in Europe that makes things happen. We want all of our employees to be empowered and motivated to carry out their roles as part of Otsuka’s global family.
