New mega med­i­cal imag­ing plant rises

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS - By ZHENG YIRAN and YANG JUN in Guiyang

Shang­hai United Imag­ing Health­care Co Ltd, a com­pany spe­cial­iz­ing in de­vel­op­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing ad­vanced med­i­cal prod­ucts, said it is fo­cus­ing on its plans to in­vest 2.2 bil­lion yuan ($323 mil­lion) in three phases to build the world’s largest med­i­cal imag­ing equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing plant in south­west­ern Guizhou prov­ince by 2020.

The fa­cil­ity will be built in Guian New Area in Guizhou, un­der a strate­gic frame­work agree­ment signed by UIH and the Guizhou pro­vin­cial govern­ment in Jan­uary 2016.

“Guian New Area, as a na­tional level new area, en­joys govern­ment pol­icy sup­port as it builds a high-tech zone,” said Zhao Ling, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer of the UIH’s Guizhou branch.

“Be­sides, man­u­fac­tur­ing costs in Guizhou are rel­a­tively low. That’s why we chose Guizhou over coastal prov­inces.”

The first phase of the project, an in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing line in Guian, be­gan op­er­a­tions at the end of last year. Ac­cord­ing to Zhao, the value of its out­put to date has ex­ceeded 50 mil­lion yuan. The fa­cil­ity mainly serves as a med­i­cal big data cen­ter and pro­duces high-end med­i­cal equip­ment.
