HatchTech selected by Huayu for Hy Line Parent Stock Hatchery in China.


HatchTech Incubation Technology has been selected by Huayu Agricultural Science and Technology Co., Ltd. to construct and equip a new hatchery. The facility to be erected in Handan, Hebei Province will produce Hy-Line parent stock chicks. HatchTech will supply incubators and HVAC installations for the hatchery, together with a full-service package of technical and biological support.


Due for completion in the third quarter of 2020, the new hatchery will supply 10 million parent layer chicks annually. The project will increase the approximate 60% market share of Hy Line in the egg production sector of China, placing more than 700 million pullets annually.


The new hatchery is the second collaboration between HatchTech and Huayu, following the successful completion of a commercial layer hatchery in July 2018. This

 layer hatchery in Handan is the world’s largest, with an annual production of 60 million day-old chicks.


“The commercial layer hatchery we built together with HatchTech is delivering excellent results,” said Mr .Wang Lianzeng, Chairman of Huayu Agricultural Science and Technology Co., Ltd. He added “our customers demand superior chick quality and a high level of biosecurity so we once again selected HatchTech to construct this important parent stock hatchery. Supported by an excellent team of technical and biological support from HatchTech’s offices in Beijing, we are confident that this new project will deliver success to all stakeholders”.


‘It is important that Hy-Line continues to develop its Chinese distribution operations’, adds Antonio Paraguassu, Managing Director at ILD/EW Group. “We strongly believe that, to support our market-leading position, we need to invest in the best possible production facilities, to provide our customers with the superior quality they demand and expect.”
