Otsuka-people creating new products for better health worldwide

Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory, Inc., the first company in the Otsuka Group, was established by Busaburo Otsuka in 1921. Originally, the company manufactured and distributed industrial and pharmaceutical chemicals. We began manufacturing intravenous solutions such as large volume parenterals in 1946. Since that time, we have extended our operations into a wide variety of areas such as the development of new drugs, innovative packaging, and intravenous delivery systems. Always ahead of the times, our achievements have received acclaim in Japan and around the world. The names “Otsuka” and “Otsuka’s Intravenous Solutions” are widely recognized, and our products are highly trusted in Japan and other countries as a leading brand of intravenous solutions. In 2005, in order to ensure that our products continue to satisfy the ever-changing needs in the clinical setting and to respond to the constantly increasing complexity and sophistication of the healthcare environment, including medical information, we established a professional scientific organization, with our professional nutrition representatives stationed across the country to provide high-quality services in the field of clinical nutrition. We continue to move forward for the health of people and better healthcare.
