Derksen Printers Ltd., secures additional color capacity with Goss Community tower extension

Thursday, March 09, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

March 8th, 2006 - Derksen Printers Ltd., of Steinbach, Manitoba, Canada, has upgraded its facility to provide increased color capacity and higher quality with the order of two Goss Community four-high towers, two splicers and an upgrade from DC to an AC drive system. Rick Derksen, president and owner of Derksen Printers Ltd., comments, “In the last few years the demands from our customers for additional color capacity and greater quality has increased dramatically - even for short-runs of between 1,000–10,000 copies. Our past experience with our existing Goss Community 12-unit press has led us once again to choose Goss as a partner for this upgrade.” He continues, “The new towers are a perfect match to our current press and they are extremely dependable. The addition will enable us to produce short-run half-tab magazines up to 100,000 copies. The new splicers will also allow us to print larger runs faster and more economically.” Derksen prints The Carillon - a 12,000 circulation weekly regional newspaper – and has become one of the largest and most successful rural newspaper publishers in the Manitoba province. They also handle contract print work for a number of clients and, with the addition of a four-color sheet-fed press, specialize in the production of short-run newspapers and flyers with run lengths from 250 – 100,000 copies. Merton Howard, regional sales manager for Canada concludes, ”We look forward to continuing the successful partnership that we have with Derksen Printers. The addition of the new Community towers and upgrades for their existing units will enable them to meet the ongoing needs of their market for more color and higher quality printing. They are looking forward to the new growth opportunities that this addition will afford them and Goss are excited to be able to work with them as they continue to grow.”
