JHL-1 Commercial Manufacturing Plant – Wuhan, China

JHL Biotech’s Wuhan site, called JHL-1, is built on a 2.5 hectare plot of land in Wuhan’s BioLake biotech industry development zone. It is notable for being the location of the world’s first GE KUBio facility. JHL’s KUBio drug substance manufacturing facility was designed and built in Germany as 62 modules, shipped to Wuhan by boat, and re-assembled on-site.

JHL-1 was designed to be constructed in phases. Phase I consists of a GE KUBio drug substance production facility and all infrastructure necessary to produce commercial drug substance. Phase II consists of a fill-finish facility capable of both liquid and lyophilized fills, and Phase III consists of a second KUBio drug substance facility.

Phase I was completed in May, 2016, and since then, JHL’s Wuhan operations have grown to employ 97 staff, a large percentage of whom are in the QC and Manufacturing groups.
