Our History


In 2006, Huayi Pharmaceutical (Anhui) Co., Ltd., a Sino-British joint venture, was established. Land was purchased and the factory designed.


In 2010, we passed the on-site inspection by MHRA and received EU GMP certification. We became the 12th solid dose pharmaceutical plant to pass EU GMP accreditation in China. We started manufacture for the EU market.


In 2012, the company passed re-inspection by MHRA.


In 2016, the company passed re-inspection by MHRA without any major deficiencies. The workshop extension passed MHRA certification and the company’s annual capacity was increased to 3 billion units.


In 2018, contract manufacturing output reached 1.6 billion units and we began construction of our oral liquid preparation workshop and high-potency workshop.


In 2019, we were named as one of the Top 50 Growing Enterprise of the Chinese Pharmaceutical Industry.


On July 14, 2020, Huayi produced the first bottle of oral liquids preparation with the Oral Liquid Preparation Workshop put into operation.

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.
