Sheng Chang Pharmaceutical Factory was founded in 1946. At the beginning of its establishment, Sheng Chang produced medicinal powders and pills. Later, it began to produce modern Chinese medicine concentrates as a pioneer of concentrated Chinese medicine (scientific Chinese medicine) in Taiwan. In 1966, Sheng Chang began mass production of high-quality concentrated Chinese medicines at the Zhonghe factory. In 1976, the concept of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) was first introduced. In 1986, Sheng Chang was reviewed by the Department of Health and became the first GMP certified Chinese medicine manufacturer in Taiwan after passing the software appraisal. In 2000, the company invested 3 billion NTD to establish the Chinese herbal medicine production, education, and research park in Zhongli. With scientific research, advanced equipment, and strict quality control, innovative products were continuously released, recognized by the pharmaceutical industry, and are sold all over the world. In 2018, Sheng Chang became PIC/S GMP certified by the Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) of Japan. In 2020, in order to promote Chinese medicine, Sheng Chang Discovery Center of Chinese Herbal Medicine was established to pass on the cultural knowledge of herbal medicine to the public.

Sheng Chang Discovery Center of Chinese Herbal Medicine is divided into five sections: wood, fire, earth, gold, and water. More than 100 kinds of Chinese medicinal materials are on display in the museum. Through interactive multimedia and touch screen games about the manufacturing process, a full exploratory experience based on the five senses is offered: Use your hearing to enter the fantasy world of Chinese herbal medicine. Engage your smell to connect with the imagination of flavor. Use your touch to feel the energy and texture of medicinal materials. Engage your taste buds to enjoy the pure and healthy nourishment. Use your vision to observe the texture and appearance of medicinal materials. It is hoped that these experiences will inspire a new attitude towards life, increase the sensitivity to the surrounding and understanding of oneself. The diversity of life created with Chinese herbal medicine philosophy is expected to help people live healthier, happier, and richer lives.

Through decades, following the spirit of Sun Simiao of using medicine to save lives, Sheng Chang has always dedicated to innovation.
