RBS Group orders two-high tower addition for O Pioneiro
Press release from the issuing company
May 31st, 2006 – Brazilian media group RBS has ordered a two-high tower addition for an existing Goss Community press at its Caxias do Sul site. The investment has been made to increase the page and color capacity of its local daily tabloid O Pioneiro.
The new equipment will allow O Pioneiro to add color pages or an additional 16 pages in black and white to the current tabloid format. Adiles Bumbel, maintenance manager at Zero Hora, a leading regional tabloid also owned by RBS, explains the benefits, “O Pioneiro’s new Community tower will increase capacity, accommodating growing demand for advertising and boosting revenue.”
RBS has selected Goss for a number of major projects. Zero Hora runs Newsliner and Metroliner presses and Goss has also provided tower additions and digital inking enhancements for the publication. Pericles Cenco, industrial manager at Zero Hora, describes the relationship, “Goss has worked with us for many years to provide the best printing solutions. The time and effort invested by the sales and support team ensures they fully understand our needs and concerns.”
The two-high Community tower was chosen for the high quality of the equipment and compatibility with the company’s existing Community press. Goss will exhibit the tower at the Expoprint show in Sao Paulo prior to shipping to the RBS Group.
Since its foundation in 1957, RBS has developed into one of the most important Brazilian media groups. With a vision of ‘helping people communicate with their world’ the group has an impressive portfolio of media including Brazilian newspapers Zero Hora, Diário Gaúcho, Diário de Santa Maria, Diário Catarinense and Jornal de Santa Catarina as well as 26 AM and FM radio stations and 18 television stations. RBS acquired O Pioneiro in 1993.
