Thursday, June 01, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

May 31st, 2006 – Goss’ continuing success in the Italian market was underlined at Italy’s international print show, Grafitalia (9 –13 May). The company announced a number of new orders at the show including three Goss M-600 presses, a Goss Sunday 4000 press and a Goss Universal 75 press. Arti Grafiche Boccia The installation of two new Goss M-600 presses has taken place at Arti Grafiche Boccia, Salerno, Italy. One of the presses, boasting the first 577.85 mm cut-off in Italy, is already saving the company between five and eight percent of the paper costs when compared with the main sizes used by the European publishing industry. Vincenzo Boccia, owner with his father Orazio and brother Maurizio, comments, “The new 577.85 mm cut-off enables us to stimulate new markets and gives our customers the opportunity to choose beyond the existing options.” Galeati Industrie Grafiche s.r.l. Galeati Industrie Grafiche s.r.l., has placed an order for a new Goss Universal 75 press for its printing plant in Imola, Bologna, Northern Italy. The press, configured with two four-high towers, a folder and two splicers, will increase color capacity at the plant, which specializes in short-run weekly newspapers. Giancarlo Ricci, director at Galeati Industrie Grafiche s.r.l. comments, “Our existing Goss presses have enabled us to deliver high-quality short-run newspapers at competitive prices, making us stand out from our competitors. We look forward to enhancing our color capacity and efficiency further with the new Goss Universal 75 press.” Claudio Minerva, from New Age s.r.l., Goss’ newspaper agent for the Italian market comments, “Goss has been very successful in the Italian market with over 100 newspaper press units sold in the last three years alone. At Grafitalia we saw a growing interest in retrofits and tower additions from publishers who are looking to further expand their capacity following major press installations. Goss retrofits and tower additions offer printers the flexibility to develop their presses as business grows. Our focus on after sales support and service makes us a business partner for the lifetime of the press.” Nava Milano Spa Nava Milano Spa, known for the fashion, design and jewellery industry clientele it attracts, has invested in a 16-page, seven-color Goss M-600 press to replace existing equipment and further improve quality at its Milan site. The press was ordered with JF-45 and JF-55 folders and a list of auxiliaries that make the configuration unique and specific to Nava’s needs. Gianni Nava, chairman, explains, “We have worked with Goss on the M-600 press to design a system that meets our specialized requirements and delivers the premium products our customers demand.” Grafiche Mercurio s.r.l. Finally, just before Grafitalia, Goss announced the order of a 48-page Goss Sunday 4000 web press by Grafiche Mercurio s.r.l., based in Angri, Salerno. The company ordered the press in response to demand for shorter runs. The new four-unit press will be equipped with a Goss PCC-2 folder with integrated stitching capability, a Goss Ecocool dryer and the unique Goss Autoplate automatic plate changing feature. Francesco Rapisardi, of Macchingraf, commercial agent for Goss in Italy, concludes, “Grafitalia was a very successful show with over 40,000 attendees visiting the new conference centre in Fiera Milano. We received a large amount of interest in the Goss M-600 from sheetfed customers excited by its ability to deliver the kind of print quality and short-run flexibility previously only offered by sheetfed presses but with the advantage of web offset speeds and economy.”
