Kowa Pharmaceutical Europe Co. Ltd.

In 1947, the privately-held multinational company Kowa Company, Ltd. of Nagoya, Japan, established its pharmaceutical division in order to research, develop, manufacture and market over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, healthcare products, prescription medicines and medical devices.

In 2000, Kowa Company, Ltd. expanded its global presence by establishing Kowa Pharmaceutical Europe Co. Ltd. This represented a significant step forward in the company’s vision of creating a global pharmaceutical organisation.
