Early this month Henan Daily Newspaper Group in Zhengzhou, the capital of China's most densely populated province, Henan, reaffirmed its successful association with Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA) by signing a contract for a third Comet press line. The order follows the installation in 2001 and 2005 of two Comet press lines with a total of eight towers and four folders. Henan Daily plant manager Chen Guo Sheng says: "The two singlewidth Comet presses demonstrate their high output, reliability and superior print quality day in and day out. Thanks to their flexibility and ease of operation, we can switch from one of our many inhouse and contract titles to another in a minimum of time." Henan Daily general manager Zhang Jian is equally impressed. "We have always been 100 per cent satisfied with the support KBA has provided, from the initial concept right through to aftersales service. So it's a pleasure to be working with KBA and the Comet once again as part of our expansion project."

Following a recent order for a Comet from Beijing Daily Group KBA sales director Stefan Segger was delighted to receive a second order from China for this popular press type within just a few months. "The new press line will make Henan Daily the biggest Comet user to date in China. This latest contract reflects the esteem in which our newspaper press technology is held among Chinese media houses."
