West has been present in China since the 1990s and today, it has two manufacturing plants in Qingpu Shanghai. In 2005, West opened our commercial office in Shanghai. The commercial office is in the city center in Global Harbor and the team there serves customers throughout China.
In 2009, West’s first manufacturing facility in China was established in Shanghai’s Qingpu industrial district. The site is approximately 31,590 square meters and manufactures components for use in IV delivery systems with best-in-class injection molding technologies in a clean manufacturing environment.
The second manufacturing plant opened at the Qingpu site in 2013, which is approximately 31,920 square meters. It is a compression molding plant that manufactures components used for packaging injectable drugs. The Qingpu facilities currently employ 250 team members and hold a gold “Investors in People” certification. Both facilities are ISO 9001 and 15378 certified.

Another highlight of the fundraising efforts of West’s team members is our annual Global Food Drive. Each year, every West site around the globe collects food that is donated to local food banks. In 2019, Qingpu collected more than five pounds of food per person, resulting in more than 2,104kg of food donated to local charities close to West operations.
