An M600 commercial press has made the 7000 km trip from Thailand to Jordan in what is being called a “logistical masterpiece”.
International and regional teams from manroland Goss Web Systems, coordinated from Singapore, worked to relocate the Goss M600 to the family-owned Al Noor Printing Press in Amman.
Established by Saeed Al Abbasi in 1979, the company prints school textbooks, among other products.
The commissioning of Al Noor’s first web-offset press and their first MGWS product – brokered by new sales and service partner for Jordan and Palestine Graphic Supplies Co – also opens up “promising prospects for further cooperation”, the companies say.
In a complex logistical process, the used Goss M600 was carefully dismantled, transported and reassembled at the customer's premises.
Al Noor executive director Osama Al Abbasi is positive about the opportunities presented:
“The Goss M600 is a printing press that impresses with outstanding quality and a high degree of automation,” he said. “Thanks to the web-fed technology, we can now significantly improve our printing performance and are excited about the increase in print possibilities.”
Weehong Soon of manroland Goss Singapore says the teamwork was excellent: “The process from sales and dismantling to installation and commissioning was handled by the same group, which enabled us to implement the project smoothly.
“As a result, the customer was able to operate their machine at top quality in the shortest possible time.”
