Astellas’ New Headquarters for the Americas

June 4, 2012. Governor Pat Quinn today joined Astellas executives and more than 1,000 employees to open the company’s new corporate headquarters for the Americas in Glenview. Astellas is investing about $140 million in Illinois as part of its expansion, which will create 150 new high-tech jobs. As part of his agenda to boost job growth across Illinois, the governor personally met with the corporation's leadership while on a trade mission last year to Japan and China.
