About us

Who we are

Huayi was formed in 2006 as a joint venture between a UK-based generic pharmaceutical company and a Chinese fine chemical supplier with a view to creating an independent export-oriented Chinese manufacturer. We were granted our EU Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Certificate in 2010 following inspection by the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

We have been able to ensure continued adherence to these high standards and passed two further re-inspections by the MHRA. Our dedication to manufacturing products of the highest quality can also be demonstrated by our facilities passing quality inspections by many customers including Novartis, Teva, Wockhardt, Genesis and Krka.

What is our mission?

Huayi’s mission is to manufacture to the highest quality standards, delivering affordable medicines to healthcare systems and health benefits to patients. We act with responsibility and integrity while providing excellent service to our customers and business partners. We provide security and fulfillment to our employees and strive for excellence in all that we do. We are accountable to our shareholders and make a profit for them over the long term by innovating and investing.

Why become our partner?

Since our establishment, we have completed site transfers of over 50 products and supply a billion doses a year to European customers. We have successfully developed dossiers for Europe resulting in granted marketing authorisations.

We have recently expanded our capability to develop products to Chinese standards also and can produce dossiers that meet both European and Chinese requirements. Together with our associated company Velocyte, we can also offer bio-equivalence studies in China to seamlessly complete the clinical part of the development.

Huayi is committed to upgrading and developing our services. We aim to increase our current manufacturing capacity from 3 billion units to 5 billion units to satisfy demand. We have built new facilities for high-potency and oral liquids manufacturing and put in to use in 2021.
