Sinovac’s history dates back to 1993 when its Chief Executive Officer Mr. Weidong Yin and the team at Tangshan Yian Biological Engineering Co. Ltd. engaged in the initial R&D activities that lead to the successful development of the Company’s hepatitis A vaccine in 1999, which is the first inactivated hepatitis A vaccine developed by Chinese scientists. Over the past two decades, the Company has developed and commercialized six human-used vaccines and one animal vaccine, and advanced its R&D pipeline. The Company has achieved many significant development milestones that exemplify its core R&D competencies, inclusive of developing the first H1N1 vaccine in the world in 2009. Moreover, it has expanded its fully integrated platform with state-of-the-art research facilities, GMP certified manufacturing facilities, and a sales team with reach across China. The Company is currently developing a novel vaccine against enterovirus 71, causing the severe hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) among the children.
