Corriere Dello Sport invests in Goss Universal 45 technology for sites across Italy

Press release from the issuing company

July 7th, 2006 – The well-known daily Italian sports newspaper publisher Corriere Dello Sport is installing a Goss Universal 45 press at its Benevento site and extending four existing Universal presses at Bologna and Monza for increased color capacity. Installation will take place in two phases and is scheduled for completion this year. The Italian publication has selected a shaftless Universal press with a 530 mm cut-off and speed of 45,000 copies per hour which will be configured with eight four-high towers, two two-high towers and 12 splicers. The splicers will be installed at 90 degrees to the press to make best use of the available space at the Benevento site. Installation of the Universal press will provide greater color and pagination capacity and the flexibility to meet increasing circulation and color advertising demands, according to Corriere Dello Sport. The publisher says previous experience has provided confidence that Goss International can provide excellent equipment and complete the major project on time. Claudio Minerva, agent for Goss newspaper presses in Italy, affirms, “Corriere Dello Sport has been impressed by Goss’ ability to work with publishers throughout every stage of the process to ensure every detail from press hall design to selecting ancillary equipment meets the specification and timeframe.” Corriere Dello Sport will also add 12 printing units to each of four existing Universal 45 shaftless presses, two in Bologna and two in Monza. Corriere Dello Sport says the new press and tower addition project reflects its strategic direction towards additional color and capacity. The publisher installed Universal presses at the sites seven and five years ago respectively and says it has experienced high printing quality combined with excellent service from the Goss International organization. Minerva concludes, “This project reflects the versatility of Goss International in meeting the individual needs of each publisher, not only through new equipment, but also through maximizing past investments.”
