Daiichi Sankyo in Europe

Our company's roots in Europe go back to the 1980s, when both Daiichi and Sankyo established offices in Düsseldorf, Germany. In 1990 Sankyo acquired the Luitpold Werke in Munich, Germany, a mid-sized German pharmaceutical company with production facilities in Pfaffenhofen, Germany and Altkirch, France. In 2006, the merger between the two Japanese companies took place in Europe. Today our European headquarters are located in Munich. We currently do business in 14 European countries and Canada. Through licensing and sales agreements, our products are available in almost every European market as well as in more than 50 countries outside the EU.

With about 2,500 employees, we are one of the strongest Japanese pharmaceutical companies  in Europe.
