“We make life saving drugs so we can’t take risks.” « Supply Chain Movement | Logistics Japan News | Scoop.it

Twelve years ago Claude Laurent took up the challenge of running the European supply chain for Japanese pharmaceutical company Astellas Pharma. His philosophy is that the supply chain is a process of product transformation, an approach that has helped to increase European turnover by fivefold to around €8.5 billion. While he would like total ownership of the supply chain he realises that sometimes you have to make compromises.

Interview conducted by Martijn Lofvers en Edwin Tuyn, written by Helen Armstrong

The pharmaceutical market is anything but simple. It is characterised by complexity, segmentation and it is limited by policies and authorisation. Still the major players have to find a competitive edge. Astellas Pharma, which manufactures and markets pharmaceuticals worldwide, is head quartered in Tokyo and employs around 17,000 people. Its aim is to expand sales by becoming Global Category Leader in several therapeutic areas including immunology, urology and oncology, It’s European subsidiary has more than 20 affiliates, three manufacturing plants and one research & development centre in Leiden, the Netherlands, which is home to Claude Laurent. He talks about his role as vice president supply chain and manufacturing for Astellas Pharma Europe and how he actively pursues the company’s business strategy and maintains a consistent line.
