Gopsons Papers orders brace of Rapida 130a presses
Wednesday, May 26, 2010
Gopsons Papers, a major Indian book printer, sealed a deal on the KBA stand at Ipex for two 5B (51in) Rapida 130a four-colour litho presses. Delivery is slated for the end of the year to Sivakasi, in southern India, where a new production plant for quality books for English-speaking export markets is currently under construction. Gopsons' headquarters in New Delhi already boasts eight KBA litho presses, among them a five-colour Rapida 74 and two four-colour plus one five-colour Rapida 105 during the past eight year alone. All are equipped with UV dryers and are networked with pre-press via CIP3. In future the plant in New Delhi will focus on production for the domestic market.
The two Rapida 130a presses, whose raft of features includes automatic plate changing, will be the first large-format presses of this type to ship to India in some time.
Established in 1950, Gopsons Papers has built up a global network of sales outlets. The company has been ISO 9001 accredited for many years now and has carried off a string of coveted prizes, among them accolades at the Printer of the Year Awards.
