WuXi AppTec Wuhan Site Resumes Operation


SHANGHAI, March 11, 2020 – WuXi AppTec announced today that the company’s Wuhan site has resumed operations, in compliance with local regulations and global COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. Operations at the Wuhan facility, which provides discovery chemistry services, will ramp up over the coming days and weeks. With this site’s re-opening, WuXi AppTec has now resumed operations at all facilities in China. WuXi AppTec is taking every precaution to ensure the health and safety of its employees across every site.

Prior to the Wuhan site re-opening, WuXi AppTec leveraged the strength of its global site network and temporarily transferred operations to other sites to continue to support customers’ projects. Pursuant to the robust execution of the company’s business continuity plan, WuXi AppTec’s multiple sites around the world have enabled the company to mitigate and minimize risk associated with unexpected work interruptions.  

“We are working with our employees and suppliers to reach steady state operations at our Wuhan site as soon as possible,” said Steve Yang, Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer of WuXi AppTec. “We value our customers’ contributions to the healthcare field, and put them first by providing timely and world-class quality service and continue to do the right thing for patients – a goal that WuXi AppTec has pursued since its founding.”
