Catalent Marks 40 Years in Japan with New Investments and Country Leader



Catalent now in its 40th year of advanced delivery technologies and development solutions for drugs, biologics, and consumer health products in the Japanese market and has appointed Tadahiro Matsumura as Country Leader. Based in Catalent’s Tokyo office, Matsumura will be responsible for driving growth through business development activities in Japan and the surrounding region.

In addition, the company has opened a laboratory at its Kakegawa, Japan site to provide proof-of-concept support and feasibility studies for Catalent’s Zydis Orally Dispersible Tablet (ODT) technology and will also expand manufacturing capacity for its OptiGel Micro softgel technology. Zydis ODT is a freeze-dried oral dosage form that disperses in the mouth, requiring no water. The new Zydis laboratories, which will be officially opened as part of the 40th anniversary celebrations in September, is being constructed within the existing 107,000 square-foot Kakegawa facility. Catalent’s OptiGel Micro Technology uses a droplet, streamline flow that results in spherical capsules. These capsules can be sized from 1-7mm, which allows for smaller capsules to be produced when compared to the traditional rotary die process.
