FDF Manufacturing

We have two FDF facilities located about 40km apart from each other, for manufacturing sterile injectables and oral solids respectively. Our manufacturing operations are focused on therapeutic areas with unmet needs in selected markets, not necessarily the “Big” areas. The FDF facilities are equipped with top notch equipment to meet global regulatory and safety standards.

Sterile Injectables Facility

■ In compliance with cGMP standards

■ Certificated by China GMP 2010

Production activities involve the manufacture of small-volume sterile injectables, packaged in vials and ampoules. Strategic Dosage Forms include Lyophilized injectables, Prefilled Syringes, Ophthalmics, and with adequate space for 11 more production lines.

With its 200 employees, the site now handles over 40 different products. Regulatory registration include those of SFDA, WHO, Health Canada and US FDA. Inspection by Health Canada and inspection by WHO are expected during late 2016 and early 2017 respectively.

Oral Solids Facility

■ In compliance with cGMP standards

■ Starting to operate in 2016

        This is a state of the art FDF facility with land area 52,000 m2 (12.9 acres) and Building area 36,000 m2. Strategic Dosage Forms include tablets, capsules and delayed or extended release formulations.

Viwit is actively pursuing licensing opportunities both in domestic market and in oversea markets. With our adequate capacities, Viwit manufacture Viwit® brand drugs and also provide CMO services for third parties. As a new facility, our first inspection by Health Canada will take place in the end of 2016.
