Prostrakan, a specialized Scottish-based pharmaceutical company, was renamed to Kyowa Kirin in April 18, 2016.
Prostrakan was acquired by Kyowa Hakko Kirin Co. Ltd. (KHK) based in Tokyo in 2011, and the Japanese company decided that, in order to present a consistent image worldwide, all its Western subsidiaries of Pharmaceutical companies would be harmonized with the name of Kyowa Kirin. Prostrakan, based in Galashiels, will trade as Kyowa Kirin International plc while the subsidiaries in different countries shall adopt the name of Kyowa Kirin in the local names of their companies.
Apart from the change in name, this move will have no impact on the business activity that takes place in Europe and the United States of America.
