Fuji as a Pioneer of Neusilin

The great depression in 1973 started with "the Oil crisis", which tremendously affected the Pharmaceutical Industry. We were one of those companies that had to endure this severe era. In spite of such difficulties, we succeeded to launch a domestically manufactured anti-neoplastic drug called "Neberk". This was our first formulated drug; developed in 1976 using our own special synthesis technology.
Our past president Ansei Nishida rallied his employees with his belief, "Establish the best technology for developing new and effective drugs in order to save precious human lives. Then the future lights up itself." He had introduced the latest synthesis facilities into one factory one after another. Consequently, Fuji refined its innovative technology and for this reason, it gained us stature as the right partner to many for the domestic and international leading pharmaceutical manufacturers.
From the early eighties we equipped ourselves with large-scale spray dryers to facilitate R&D and the production of "orphan drugs". In doing so we were able to actualize our company belief and become pioneers in the field of Orphan Drugs. After two decades of expansion, Mitsunori Nishida took the post as president and has been leading a new structure of manufacturing, sales and quality assurance ever since.
