First Thallo sold under new Goss and DG press partnership
Drupa, – Following the recent announcement of their strategic partnership, Goss International and DG press ServiceS B.V. have announced the first sale of a Goss Thallo system under the new agreement.
Purchased by a leading packaging converter in Russia, the Thallo 850 system will be configured for flexible packaging applications, combining web offset printing units with in-line flexo and coating units, allowing the customer to print using a combination of offset and flexo. The system will also be equipped for UV and EB curing and will be in operation at the customer site in Moscow, Russia, in the first quarter of 2017.
"This order is testament to the productivity and quality advantages the Thallo offers," comments Bert Schoonderbeek, Managing Director, Goss Europe. "These systems address demands for shorter runs and faster turnarounds while presenting the packaging and converting market with a more productive and cost-effective alternative for many applications. There is still a lot of untapped potential in the web offset market for packaging and working with DG press gives us the opportunity to explore this potential further and bring new benefits to our customers."
The Thallo will produce high-quality flexible packaging, including seed packets.
Peter Kloppers, Co-Owner and Director, DG press comments, "We are delighted this customer has chosen the Thallo. Its capabilities suit their requirements perfectly and we're confident that once installed, they will see the many benefits of this system, such as the ability to produce cost-effective short runs, first hand."
