标  题: Takeda's in Deerfield, 1,000 people, to close

Japanese drugmaker Takeda Pharmaceutical Co. will close its U.S.
headquarters in Deerfield, a three-building complex employing 1,000 people,
and move the work to the Boston area.

The company notified employees Monday of its plans. Takeda has 5,000 U.S.
employees.

In a statement, Takeda spokeswoman Julia Ellwanger said a number of
Deerfield employees will be offered jobs elsewhere, but she didn’t specify
how many.

The decision comes as Takeda works to complete its acquisition of Irish
drugmaker Shire for $62.4 billion in cash and stock.

“The work currently performed at Takeda’s Deerfield location will
progressively consolidate from Deerfield into the greater Boston area
following a successful closing of the Shire acquisition (which is subject to
shareholder approvals and regulatory consents),” Ellwanger said. “This
move, while difficult, will allow closer collaboration across Takeda to best
position our future pipeline for success. It will also simplify our
existing Takeda U.S operations.”

The Shire deal is expected to close during the first half of 2019. Employees
will be notified within six months of that deal’s closure whether they’ll
still have jobs with Takeda, Ellwanger said. Takeda previously announced
that it planned to cut up to 7 percent of its global workforce after the
acquisition.

But even if that deal falls apart, Takeda still expects to progressively
move from Deerfield into the greater Boston area, Ellwanger said. She
declined to make Takeda leaders available for interviews Tuesday.

Shire has about 800 employees in Illinois, including about 400 in
Bannockburn, a municipality that borders Deerfield. No decisions have been
made yet about what will happen to those employees after the acquisition,
Shire spokeswoman Katie Joyce said in an email.

The Takeda-Shire deal has faced some resistance since it was announced in
May. Kazu Takeda, a member of the family that founded the company, recently
said the deal would have “disastrous” consequences for Takeda and could
distance it from the corporate philosophy of “Takeda-ism,” which says that
profit comes from making people happy, according to the Financial Times.
Kazu Takeda is part of a group of shareholders fighting the proposed deal,
according to the Times.

Deerfield Mayor Harriet Rosenthal said Tuesday the village is sorry to see
the company shift operations elsewhere. “It’s sad they chose to leave
Deerfield,” Rosenthal said. “They were good community partners and we will
miss them. For the employees who will relocate or lose their jobs, we’re
sorry to see them go.”

At this point, the economic impact from the loss of workers is unclear, she
added. “We don’t know exactly how many are residents of the village,”
Rosenthal said. "Those who shopped here or ate at the restaurants, we’re
sorry they won’t be doing that. We hope someone will take over those
beautiful buildings.”

Takeda is housed in three buildings and more than 777,000 square feet in
Deerfield that’s visible from Interstate 294. The company’s real estate
group will make recommendations to company leaders about what to do with the
buildings once the Shire deal closes, Ellwanger said.

Vicki Street, executive director of the Deerfield, Bannockburn, Riverwoods
Chamber of Commerce, said her organization wants to help affected workers.
“My first concern is for the employees who are not going to be going to
Boston,” she said. “That’s a lot of people and we want to know what we
can do to help keep them in the community and find them new jobs.”

Other businesses are likely to be affected as well. Redlands Grill, across
Lake-Cook Road from Takeda, regularly hosted events for the company, said
Denise Tysick, the restaurant’s general manager.

“They send a lot of business; we love hosting their client dinners,”
Tysick said. “I am fairly certain it’s going to impact our business.”

Takeda’s announcement came as Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner was in Omaha,
Neb., for the 50th anniversary of the Midwest U.S.-Japan Association
Conference, touting Illinois’ business climate and relationships with
Japanese businesses.

Crain’s Chicago Business first reported Takeda’s decision.

The announcement doesn’t come as a total surprise. Some of Takeda’s U.S.
operations have already been consolidated in the Boston area in recent years
. The company also has a government affairs office in Washington, D.C., a
manufacturing site in Minnesota, and a research facility in San Diego.
Takeda does not have plans to close any of those sites, Ellwanger said.

In May, Ramona Sequeira, president of Takeda’s U.S. business unit, hinted
to the Tribune that the company’s future in Deerfield was uncertain, saying
at that time Takeda had not yet decided whether to hang on to its Deerfield
offices.
