Shanghai. December 20. INTERFAX-CHINA - Gansu Fuzheng Pharmaceutical Technologies Co. Ltd. has started producing polypropylene (PP) bottle infusions at a new production line in Gansu Province's Dingxi City, local media reported Dec. 20.

According to Dingxi Daily, Fuzheng Pharma invested a total of RMB 100 million ($15.03 million) in the facility, which has production capacity for 100 million bottles annually and is projected to generate annual sales revenue of RMB 200 million ($30.06 million).

The workshop has Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification from the local branch of the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA), and is the first of its kind in Gansu.
