I. Business model for the high-end intelligent equipment sector
1. Dongfang-the assembly of high-end corrugated carton printers
The average price of the corrugated carton printer is RMB 4 million to RMB 15 million, with approximately 50% of them sold to domestic large and medium-sized customers or listed companies and approximately 50% of the revenue deriving from the overseas markets (mainly in the United States and Europe). The Dongfang printer, the first brand in China, ranks among the top three in the world in the industry segment.
Executing the make-to-order strategy, our delivery period is only 3-5 months. With an increased equipment installed the revenue and profit generated by after-sales service is a new growth point for the company.
As a relatively mature industry, the business of corrugated carton printer manufacturing will depend on customers upgrading and modernizing. Due to the technical superiority of the brand, Dongfang will sustain steady growth in the coming years.
2. Our Italian EDF- company offers high-end corrugated carton printer assembly line and pre- and post-printing associated equipment.
EDF Europes S.R.L. was founded by three founders in bologna, Italy, in 2009, with the principal business being manufacturing of high-end corrugated carton printer assembly lines and pre- and post-printing auxiliary equipment. In view of the overall industrial chain layout of packaging equipment in the global mainstream market, DPG completed the acquisition of 100% equity of Italian EDF Europes S.R.L..
The average price of each printing machine, which is manufactured by pursuing the make-to-order strategy, amounts to RMB 16 million to 25 million (2-3 million Euros), and the delivery period is 6-7 months.
Europe is currently EDF's main market. We plan to develop the market of North America while expanding the Asian market by means of Dongfang’s brand influence and sales channels.

The production lines, whose average unit price amounts to RMB 25 million to 35 million, are geared to the needs of the Asian markets, in particular China and India.
Adopting the make-to-order strategy, we deliver the goods 6-8 months after receiving the order.
After several years of research and development, the new product jointly worked on by the Chinese and Italian teams were introduced to the market in 2017. With the rise of labor costs and the trend of industrial upgrading, China demands more and more middle- and high-end automation equipment and hence Fosber Asia is expected to see a period of rapid growth in the coming years.
