Journal Graphics orders Goss Sunday 2000 web press
Press release from the issuing company
May 14th, 2007 – Journal Graphics has ordered a new Goss Sunday 2000 press system for its facility in Portland, Oregon. The company will install the four-unit web press, its first with gapless blanket technology, beginning in June. Goss International will supply a Contiweb CS splicer, Ecocool dryer with integrated chill rolls, PFF 3.2 pinless folder and Omnicon controls.
“Beyond the advantages of the gapless Sunday platform, we feel Goss International is a top-notch organization,” explains Journal Graphics President Phil Bridge. “They make it a priority to understand our business and they have continuously delivered technology and support to make us more competitive.”
Journal Graphics operates several Goss presses including M-500 and Community SSC systems. The company specializes in publication and magazine printing and was the first company ever in America west of the Mississippi River to install a
heatset web press.
The upcoming Goss press installation will include a provision for a potential second five-unit Sunday 2000 press to be added in the future and duplexed with the first press.
