Apple Daily extends Goss Universal presses in Hong Kong and Taiwan

Press release from the issuing company

January 23rd, 2006 – Apple Daily, the award winning full color newspaper published by media giant Next Media, has ordered six Goss Universal 70 four-high press towers and five Universal 50 four-high towers from Goss International. The new towers will be added to its six existing Universal 70 presses in Taiwan and to five Universal 50 presses in Hong Kong, respectively, and will significantly increase pagination and color capacity of the presses in both locations. The order confirms the newspaper’s position as the largest single Goss Universal customer. Apple Daily has been printing its flagship Hong Kong edition on its Goss Universal 50 presses for over ten years. Alvis Loo, Chief Operating Officer, Printing, testifies, “The successful launch and subsequent astronomical growth of our newspaper, has been supported by the quality and reliability of our Goss Universal presses.” Quality is paramount at Apple Daily and the newspaper quickly established a reputation for its high standards. The newspaper has also won plaudits for its visually striking, colorful style, which makes the most of the presses’ ability to print color on every page. This did not go unnoticed at the 2005 PANPA conference where the Taiwan and Hong Kong editions won the “Asia Best in Print” award in the single width category. Apple Daily branched out into Taiwan in 2002, investing in the Goss Universal 70 presses in order to maintain the standards of quality that the publication had established in Hong Kong. The two-around Universal 70 press was chosen for Taiwan over the one-around Universal 50 to meet the unique demands of the Taiwan advertising market. Apple Daily has been proven right in his prediction that Apple Daily would be well received in the Taiwanese market. The decision to extend comes as Apple Daily’s circulation figures and advertising demands in Taiwan continue to rise. The press additions are not only evidence of Apple Daily’s achievements, but also of the success of the loyal business relationship between the newspaper and Goss.
