ProStrakan rebrands as Kyowa Kirin

ProStrakan, the Scotland-based specialty pharmaceutical company, has rebranded as Kyowa Kirin as from the 18th April 2016.

ProStrakan was acquired by Tokyo-based Kyowa Hakko Kirin Co. Ltd. (KHK) in 2011 and the Japanese company has decided that, in order to present a consistent image across the world, all of its western pharmaceutical subsidiaries are to adopt the Kyowa Kirin name. ProStrakan's Galashiels headquartered business will trade as Kyowa Kirin International plc with its various country affiliates adopting the Kyowa Kirin name into their local company titles.

Aside from the name change itself, the move will have no impact on the business, which operates across Europe and the United States of America.
