Brown Printing Co. (www.bpc.com) (Waseca, MN) announces the
acquisition of the world’s first Goss (www.gossinternational.com)
Sunday 3000 web press with an extended 75-inch web width. The
purchase underscores Brown’s commitment to building the most
modern platform in the industry.
The 4-unit, 32-page press will be capable of producing saddle stitched and perfect bound product up to 9” wide, a first for single-circumference web presses. Brown will equip the press with closed-loop color as well as automated register and ribbon controls that increase efficiency while maintaining a high level of quality.
“Brown’s facilities are among the most modern and efficient in the country. In fact, the last Sunday 3000 press installed in the United States back in 2008 also was purchased by Brown,” says Volker Petersen, president and CEO, Brown Printing Co. “We continually look for ways to improve our productivity in order to better serve our customers. Brown’s history of strong reinvestment puts the best equipment, service and technology at our customers’ fingertips.”
“Brown Printing has been a longstanding leader in bringing the advantages of the latest high-speed, wide-web technology to its catalog and publication customers,” adds Jochen Meissner, president and CEO, Goss Intl. . “We are grateful for this opportunity to extend our relationship and work with the team at Brown on another groundbreaking project.”
Installation of the new Goss Sunday press in Brown’s Waseca, MN facility will begin in the spring and is expected to be completed by July 2011.
