("Orient Paper" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of diversified paper products in North China, today announced that it has completed the installation of previously purchased packaging equipment at the Company's Wei County Industrial Park facility for its tissue paper packaging production lines and has commenced trial production.
