With a yearly production of five mil-

LNBs, Topsignal is one of the largest
manufactures of these products. The
company actually started in a com-

tuators and motors for satellite dish-

Ninghai. Ninghai is located near Ningbo
which itself is a three-hour train ride
south of Shanghai.
Zongbao King founded the company

kind of order since our storeroom is still
fully stocked.”

sales giants at Topsignal: “In 2008 we
started manufacturing satellite dish-
es and in 2011 we started producing
LNBs.” The quantities are huge: nearly

are almost the same is simply that the
dishes and LNBs are sold in sets. A
