TPI Begins Construction Of Qionglai Facility (QLF)

Stocks in this article: TPI

CHENGDU, China, Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Tianyin Pharmaceutical Co., Inc. (NYSE Amex: TPI), a pharmaceutical company that specializes in patented biopharmaceutical, modernized traditional Chinese medicine (mTCM), branded generics and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) today announced that the Company has started its Qionglai Facility (QLF) project following the initial planning period. The Phase I of QLF project will be the construction of the pre-extraction plant which is targeted for completion by the end of 2012 calendar year.

The pre-extraction is the first step of the manufacturing process of modernized traditional Chinese medicine (mTCM). The pre-extraction facility will conduct initial processing of TCM raw material, separation using alcohol or water precipitation, filtration, centrifugation, concentration and purification of TCM pharmaceutical ingredients which will be further processed for the production of mTCM at the formulation facility.

About Pre-extraction and formulation plant development at QLF

In preparation for the new Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards stipulated by the PRC government in early 2011, TPI initiated the process of optimizing the manufacturing facilities and production lines in compliance with the new GMP standards by 2013. Concurrently, the city of Chengdu has re-designated various industrial parks of nearby counties for particular industries such as automobile, biotechnologies, pharmaceuticals and chemical engineering for individual locations. As a consequence, TPI's manufacturing facility at the Longquan district, east of Chengdu, which is designated for automotive industry, is scheduled to be relocated to Qionglai city, south of Chengdu, which is designated for pharmaceutical industry. The QLF is approximately 18 miles from the Company's recently completed Jiangchuan macrolide (JCM) facility. The proposed relocation project also includes our TCM pre-extraction plant which is located near the center of the city of Chengdu surrounded by rapidly expanding residential area.

The QLF is estimated to be 80 mu or 53,000 m2. Both pre-extraction plant and the formulation plant are to be relocated. The combined QLF plant, designed and constructed according to the latest GMP standards, is expected to relieve the current capacity saturation at TPI's facilities. The re-location and construction cost is estimated at $25 million for Phase I which will expand the current capacity by 30%. For Phase II QLF, an additional $10 million may be employed to double the current capacity by 2013.
