PETALING JAYA: A senior management team from Standard Chartered Bank Malaysia Bhd, led by chief executive officer and managing director Shayne Nelson, visited Menara Star and Star Media Hub yesterday and left impressed by the state-of-the-art printing technology and editorial systems.  

“I have visited other printing plants before, but not one so big and equipped with such modern technology,” Nelson said.  

“And the factory is so clean, you can practically eat off the floor!”  

He added that the visit allowed members of both organisations to know each other better and for the banking group to have an idea of how the media worked.
