The leading global biopharmaceutical company, Eisai, was established in 1944 and now employs over 7,000 staff worldwide. With a strong focus on prescription drugs, their key functions include research & development, production, distribution and marketing.
Eisai wanted to incorporate all of their functions in a range of bespoke buildings within a campus-style setting. In addition to an outstanding working environment, Eisai also desired an easily accessible location close to major airports.
The Goodman Solution
Working closely with Eisai, Goodman managed the total development, providing them with a campus totalling 22,992 sq m, set in three buildings, linked together with a central shared facilities building, all situated in a uniquely designed landscaped environment.
Eisai's custom-built facility was completed in January 2009 and will further enhance the UK's reputation as an international location for scientific innovation.
Eisai's president, Haruo Naito, described the development as, "Much more than just a space in which to work, it facilitates our entire operation, from concept to creation to distribution."
