Following the completion of construction and installation of equipments, the Company is currently engaged in carrying out limited testing procedures with its current power supply system on separate sections of its new production line, and in recruiting and training new employees. Meanwhile, Orient Paper is coordinating with the local government and electricity department to activate the Company's new power station, which will be the primary source of power supply for the new corrugating paper production line. The Company expects the new power station to be activated and the commercial production of the production line to be officially launched in the near term.
"With the completion of construction and installation of the paper manufacturing equipments, we are now making progress on testing procedures. We also expect to conduct complete trial runs after our new power station is activated," commented Mr. Zhenyong Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Orient Paper. "We have been working towards expanding our capacity over the past few years. We believe at our new facility, we will produce high-quality products that will further strengthen our market reputation and increase our market share."
