Major API Manufacturers in China

As a pharmaceutical importer, it is very important for you to choose the right api manufacturers when you import pharmaceutical raw materials from China. No mater it is you buy directly from the manufacturers, or you source them through traders.

Let me give you several examples then you will better understand.

If you want to import Amoxcillin powder, you would go with ZhuHai United Lab. If you are trying to buy imipenem monohydrate, you will choose Shenzhen Haibin Pharma, no?

In case you need to source paracetamol, you have to check prices from Hebei Jiheng Pharma. When you need to import Vitamin C, you got to contact CSPC.

But you may ask: Why? Ok, below are the reasons:

#1. Reliable and steady Quality

Your right manufactuer has been supplying this api for years and they will make sure apis supplied to you have consistent quality, which is very important for your medicine manufacturing. Even there is any quality issue, they would do their best to solve it.

Take the Valsartan’s NDMA for example, if Huahai Pharma is an unreliable manufacturer, they would not do anything about NDMA scandal at all, they would just disappear. But what did was to stand out and shoulder all the responsibilities they should, to refund their customers or work out a deal.

In fact, none of other testing facilities brought the issue of NDMA but Huahai themself, it is a sign of social responsibility.

#2. Ready registration documents with official audits availability

As those api factories have been manufacturing pharmaceutical ingredients for decades, they have registered many of their apis in foreign MOH. Even some products are not registered, they get their registration docs ready for any suitable foreign customers before the import.

Plus, their manufacturing faclity is suitable for your official audits

#3. Reasonable prices with controlable lead time

You may not get the lowest prices of them all, but the prices you get are fair market prices. Without soaring prices from intermediates, factories will keep the prices stable for years.

Also, those manufacturers will postpone the lead time time after time as others do, your lead time is made sure here.
