Press release from the issuing company

June 1st, 2006 – Litografia Magno Graf of Puebla, Mexico, has ordered a Goss Community press to expand production of its main newspaper title Sintesis into two further states. The company, which currently prints Sintesis for distribution across the Mexican states of Puebla, Hidalgo and Tlaxcala, will now additionally produce copies for both Veracruz and Morelos states. The new fourteen-unit Community press will be configured with one two-high and three four-high towers and will be installed with a new folder and four zero-speed splicers. The press, which is due to be installed in early October 2006, is set to cut waste by up to 50 percent and significantly increase productivity at the plant in Puebla. Armando Prida Noriega, general director of Magno Graf explains the decision to buy the press. “It is an exciting time for publishers in Mexico as demand for newspapers has developed very quickly over the last three years. In order to benefit we have invested in a Community press to expand our capacity and offer very high print quality. We have chosen to work with Goss because we trust them to supply durable, robust equipment, exactly configured for our needs.” The company, which was founded in 1971 and employs nearly 600 people, currently runs six web presses and three sheetfed presses producing a range of print products including newspapers, books, brochures and leaflets for customers across Mexico. Prida adds, “Expanding into two further regions is a significant development for the company and the new press will almost double our newspaper output. Goss’ excellent support and customer service, will enable us to maximize the potential of the marketplace in the future.”
