About Takeda

Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc. (TPNA) is committed to strive toward better health for patients through leading innovation in medicine. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, Japan's largest pharmaceutical company and one with a 230-year heritage.

Our History

Over two centuries ago, a small medicine shop was opened in Doshomachi, Osaka, Japan to provide medicines to local merchants and doctors. This was the beginning of the present-day Takeda family of pharmaceutical companies. Many generations later, in 1998, Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America, Inc. (TPNA) was introduced. With a robust pipeline of compounds in development for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other conditions, Takeda rapidly brings innovative products to market to improve patient health and enhance the practice of medicine.

Our mission is simple and compelling: we are committed to strive toward better health for patients worldwide through leading innovation in medicine. Our commitment to patients, employees, partners, and the larger community gives us the purpose to build on the tremendous success we enjoy as an emerging global leader in the pharmaceutical industry.
