PARSIPPANY, US: Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc has completed the purchase of three buildings on Brandywine Parkway in West Chester, Pennsylvania.

Together with three other buildings Teva owns in the same corporate park, firmly establishes a North America Research & Development (R&D) campus.

Focused primarily on biologics, a core R&D platform on which the company continues to build for future growth, the R&D campus further augments the company’s significant US presence.

Representing a significant investment over the last 12 years in capital improvements, infrastructure and now the purchase of these three buildings, Teva’s West Chester R&D campus houses clinical development and manufacturing processes for highly complex biologic medicines developed by Teva.

The campus also includes laboratories where advanced preclinical and clinical testing is conducted to ensure the safety and effectiveness of new drugs. Approximately 650 employees will be based at Teva in West Chester by the end of 2019, including teams involved in combination product and device R&D, regulatory affairs, medical affairs, and support functions.

Teva employs approximately 7,000 employees in multiple locations in the US in manufacturing, commercial, R&D and administrative functions.

“With our late-stage biologics R&D development teams co-located on a single campus, the company has created a one-stop shop for biologics development and clinical manufacturing. From cell bank to syringe, our West Chester R&D campus is home to many of the North American-based R&D teams and processes that will bring more biologics treatment options to patients, and support Teva’s global mission to improve lives,” said Mehran Yazdanian, Senior Director, Specialty R&D Scientific Strategy & Operations, Global R&D and Site Head.
