In an in­ter­ac­tion with BioSpec­trum Cindy Liu, Sales Man­ager, and Tina van, Sales Man­ager, Shi­ji­azhu­nag Xin­fuda Med­i­cal Pack­ag­ing shared the plans of

the com­pany.

Pl tell us about your com­pany.

Our com­pany was founded in 2002. We have three man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties, two of them are cov­er­ing an area of more than 60,000 square me­ters. We have over 200 peo­ple work­ing at two of the three pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties. We pro­duce plas­tic con­tain­ers for medicines used for hu­mans as well as an­i­mals. We are spe­cial­izes in de­sign­ing & man­u­fac­tur­ing a wide range of ready-made & cus­tom made plas­tic pack­ag­ing prod­ucts for phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and other in­dus­tries. Our pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity is to pro­duce 3,000,000 bot­tles & con­tain­ers per week. In or­der to en­sure qual­ity of the prod­ucts we have third party qual­ity check.

What types of plas­tic prod­ucts you man­u­fac­ture for phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­tries?

We have sev­eral prod­ucts. Our prod­ucts cat­e­gories are food & health­care pack­ag­ing, ef­fer­ves­cent tablet pack­ag­ing, health care bot­tles and con­tain­ers with child proof cap, dis­pos­able plas­tic cup, Cydo Olefin Poly­mer (COP) vials and dry pow­der in­halers. The ac­tual prod­ucts port­fo­lio in­cludes Oral Bot­tles, Dis­in­fec­tant Bot­tles, Vac­cine Bot­tles, Twin-neck bot­tle, Eye Drop­per Bot­tles, Es­sen­tial Oil Bot­tles, Spray Bot­tles, Des­ic­cant pack­ag­ing, Paste sy­ringe, Re­filled Sy­ringes, Sealed bot­tles, 96-well Plates, ELISA Plates. In ad­di­tion we have pro­fes­sional De­sign & De­vel­op­ment Depart­ment that can de­sign all kinds of plas­tic bot­tles and con­tain­ers ac­cord­ing to a cus­tomer’s spe­cific

re­quire­ment. We al­ways strive to in­no­vate and pro­vide su­pe­rior qual­ity prod­ucts, just-in-time de­liv­ery, and most com­pet­i­tive pric­ing. Re­ly­ing on the ad­vanced equip­ment, ef­fec­tive qual­ity con­trol, good man­age­ment and well-trained em­ploy­ees who work ef­fi­ciently un­der a safe and healthy en­vi­ron­ment, our prod­ucts are widely rec­og­nized. The prod­ucts with child proof cap are gain­ing im­por­tance in China since this keeps chil­dren safe from medicines. We have im­ported ma­chines and im­ported ma­te­ri­als. With that we pro­duces over 45 mil­lion pieces of dif­fer­ent types of prod­ucts each year, 25 mil­lion from one pro­duc­tion fa­cil­ity and 10 mil­lion each from two oth­ers.

Which are your com­peti­tor com­pa­nies?

There are many com­pa­nies in China mak­ing sim­i­lar types of prod­ucts. But for cer­tain types of prod­ucts there is no competition. We are the only com­pany pro­duc­ing those prod­ucts in China.

What is to­tal mar­ket size of th­ese type of prod­ucts? What is the mar­ket share of your com­pany?

I am not aware about the to­tal Chi­nese mar­ket size for th­ese type of prod­ucts. But, our mar­ket share is about 85 per cent in the an­i­mal pack­ag­ing seg­ment and about 15% in the hu­man medicines pack­ag­ing seg­ment. It is be­cause our com­pany be­gan its pro­duc­tion first by prod­ucts in the an­i­mal seg­ment. So, we are there in an­i­mal seg­ment right from the be­gin­ning of our com­pany. But in hu­man

seg­ment we came later.

Do you ex­port your prod­ucts?

Yes. We started sell­ing our prod­ucts over­seas from 2011. Our prod­ucts are sold in Europe, USA, Canada, Israel, Aus­tralia, France, Rus­sia, Thai­land, Malaysia and UK. Ap­prox­i­mately 15 per cent of our prod­ucts are ex­ported. In the an­i­mal pharma seg­ment, top 10 com­pa­nies in the seg­ment are our clients.

What are the fu­ture plans of the com­pany?

We will be fo­cus­ing more now on func­tional pack­ag­ing so­lu­tions in medicines for phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies and for the pa­tients. We will fo­cus on the way to solve the prob­lems they all are fac­ing to make the medicines safer and to make the peo­ple health­ier. We will not only pro­duce the nor­mal plas­tic bot­tles just for stor­age and trans­porta­tion, but we will also pro­vide more value pharma com­pa­nies and hu­mans. Our R&D is search­ing for very dif­fer­ent so­lu­tions for our clients, so that we can fig­ure out which way is more im­por­tant, how fur­ther value can be added. We have five years plan. In over­seas mar­ket this year we will go to North Amer­ica and Europe. For North Amer­ica we have Viet­nam data­base. We al­ready have five types of prod­ucts in the USA mar­ket. We will fo­cus more on very com­pet­i­tive prod­ucts and mak­ing phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies to be stricter for their pack­ag­ing. In China there are many small com­pa­nies in phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and pharma pack­ag­ing sec­tors. More and more Chi­nese phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal com­pa­nies are op­er­at­ing on USFDA con­di­tions. So, it is pro­gress­ing. Now, we also will be ap­ply­ing USFDA norms and Euro­pean stan­dards. We have al­ready started tak­ing some steps in that di­rec­tion like hav­ing 3rd party check and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for qual­ity.
