Qingpu Park is one of the six sub-parks of Shanghai's Zhangjiang National Innovation Demonstration Zone. It covers an area of 25 sq km. In order to develop into a modern industrial park with a good ecological environment, it emphasizes construction of environmentally friendly infrastructure and introduction of leading industries with innovative ability and functional sectors. Its leading industries include biopharmaceuticals, advanced equipment and new materials.
The park holds 23 well-known enterprises, such as Bayer, a global enterprise with core competencies in life science, West Pharmaceutical Services Inc, a leading manufacturer of packaging components and delivery systems for injectable drugs and healthcare products, and Shanghai Chenguang Medical Technologies Co, Ltd. It aims to attract more dominant firms involving every step of the industrial chain and build industrial clusters of medical equipment and biologics.
With the support of the National Torch Program Plan and local government, the park is actively developing a new material industry that features technology-intensive, high-value-added and environmentally friendly products. It is home to 84 such firms offering fine chemical engineering and architecture. Two are Invista, one of the world's largest integrated producers of polymers and fibers, and Quaker Chemical, a leading player in advanced high quality chemical products.
The park will transform traditional manufacturing into intelligent manufacturing with the help of technological improvements and preferential policies. There are 72 companies, including US-based water processing company Pentair Water and German parts maker ZF Friedrichshafen AG. Their businesses cover auto parts, precision machinery, power transmission and distribution.
