Böwe Bell + Howell (BBH) and China Post/Shanghai Research Institute have signed a cooperative agreement that enables distribution of BBH’s High-Speed Flats Feeder technology into mainland China, along with integration of SRI cross-belt technology into BBH systems for the global market. China Post is a state-owned enterprise that regulates the national postal industry in the People’s Republic of China, and SRI is a leading research and development organisation that consults and provides solutions and recommendations to China Post.
“We are honoured and very pleased to enter into this mutually beneficial agreement with China Post/SRI. This relationship is consistent with our philosophy of providing customer-focused innovation, in long-term partnerships with recognised industry experts,” said George Marton, BBH’s CEO.
China is one of the few countries in the world that is experiencing growth in paper mail volumes. The modernisation of the postal and mail-handling infrastructure in China has provided a unique opportunity for partnership with China Post/SRI. “We look forward to working with China Post/SRI, learning about the market needs in China and leveraging our US mailing infrastructure knowledge,” added Mike Swift, president, BBH postal and sorting software.
