Diario La Verdad orders first combined Goss press and newspaper packaging system in South America
Press release from the issuing company
June 1st, 2006 – Diario La Verdad has ordered a Goss Beltveyor conveyor system and GS500 stacker only months after ordering a Goss Community press. The new packaging components will join the Community press in the company’s new production facility, which is currently under construction in Venezuela. The order is the first combined Goss press and packaging system ordered in South America.
The packaging components will be used to convey and stack the company’s namesake title, Diario La Verdad, a standard, 40 page broadsheet. The Goss system will print and stack over 55,000 copies of the newspaper each day for delivery across the region of Zulia in northwest Venezuela.
Juan Carlos Abudei Muller, president and editor in chief of Diario La Verdad, explains, “We are one of the fastest growing titles in South America. When we first started the newspaper eight years ago, we installed a Goss Community press, and our consequent success has led us to buy more Goss equipment to increase our productivity and circulation. Being able to buy both the press and the packaging equipment from Goss gives us great confidence for the installation and ongoing quality of our print.”
Julio Gostisa, Goss sales manger for South America, adds, “We are unique in our ability to offer press and print finishing solutions for both newspaper and commercial printing from a single vendor. Diario La Verdad’s recent orders underline its confidence in the added value of this integrated approach.”
