China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

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)
