Mark Andy Inc., a leader in narrow and midweb printing equipment and UV curing systems, joined with distributor United Printing Equipment & Materials Corporation to celebrate the 100th installation of Mark Andy equipment in China. The celebration was held November 14 to coincide with the All In Print 2008 trade show in Shanghai, and honored the recent Mark Andy XP5000 sale to New Faith Hi-Tech Printing Ltd. in Guangzhou.
Greg Palm, vice president of Mark Andy, and Benny Shaw, board chairman of United Printing, presented the 100th installation award to Chen Jiandong, general manager of New Faith.
More than 200 printing industry professionals from the region were in attendance at the event, including Wu Wenxiang, honorary chairman executive of the Printing Technology Association of China; Xu Jinfeng, vice chairman executive and secretary-general of Printing and Printing Equipment Industries Association of China (PEIAC); Tan Junqiao, senior adviser of PEIAC; Shen Haixiang, vice chairman executive of Printing Technology Association of China; and Xu Wencai, vice president of Printing and Packaging Engineering of Beijing Institute of Graphic Communication.
"Mark Andy is committed to the Chinese market," says Mary Sullivan, director of global marketing for Mark Andy. "We are encouraged by the relationships we have developed with New Faith and other respected customers and industry professionals in the region. We look forward to further enhancing these alliances as we move forward."
"The United Printing team has worked hard to realize such great success," adds Peter Chen, general manager of United Printing, "but we could not have achieved this milestone without the support of the flexo printing industry, Mark Andy, and most importantly, our valued customers."
