For Takeda employees in Thousand Oaks, "Every Vial Has a Name"

The Thousand Oaks site is a vertically integrated and licensed bioprocessing plant with over 25 years manufacturing experience. The team is proud to make three drug substances and five finished products for the rare disease community. Takeda recently invested $126 million dollars to expand the site's footprint, grow its portfolio of treatments and increase the capacity to manufacture additional products for its patients.
