J&J to build world’s largest production base
US-based Johnson & Johnson, a Fortune 500 company, is taking a big step to meet growing demand from China and other emerging markets by building its largest supply-chain production base in Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi province, at a cost of $300 million.
The base will become the top bio-pharmaceutical factory with the largest floor area in China after it is completed and put into operation in 2018.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held on April 17 in Xi’an High-tech Development Zone. J&J announced at the ceremony that the production capacity of the newly built production base will be much higher than its existing factories. (Photo 2)
