Japanese pharmaceutical company Daiichi Sankyo is planning on renovating a 140,000 sq. ft facility in Bethlehem Township and opening its first manufacturing and packaging plant here in the US. The company plans on creating 80 jobs in its first three years here.
Daiichi-Sankyo manufactures medications AZOR®, BENICAR®, EFFIENT®, EVOXAC®, TRIBENZOR™, and WELCHOL® (all sold in the U.S. market.) Their U.S. headquarters is in Parsippany, NJ.
Once the factory is fully operational, it will manufacture all of its U.S.-marketed medications in this plant.
The new plant represents nearly $20 million in investment of equipment, renovations, and training, all centered in Bethlehem Township.
