Goss theme Achieving more together

Hall 15 Stand D51

The Goss Sunday Vpak press for high-quality, short-run packaging applications

Goss International will be demonstrating its visionary approach to partnerships at drupa 2016, affirming that partnering with like-minded, market-leading suppliers and printers will be the key to future industry success. Under the theme ‘Achieving more together’ Goss will show how bringing complementary brands and solutions together is the most logical way to support Goss customers and prospects considering investments in new products and services.

The company will also be highlighting its unique commercial, newspaper and packaging press portfolio, for which these partnerships also provide great value and added benefits for new and existing customers. Goss’ commitment to product development and technological innovations that meet the needs of its customers will be evident at drupa 2016.

With spotlights on the many production, automation and quality benefits of Goss’ product portfolio, the company’s comprehensive product range will be showcased via interactive digital communications. Products highlighted include the Goss Sunday Vpak press for high-quality, short-run packaging applications; the Magnum Compact press for short- to medium-run book, newspaper and semi-commercial applications; and Goss’ flexible, highly-productive M600 and Sunday commercial web presses. In addition, Goss will demonstrate to visitors how its wide range of Lifetime Support Services can help its valued, existing customers remain competitive and maximize the productivity and efficiency of their Goss equipment.

The Goss stand will also highlight the latest Contiweb technologies. Contiweb is well-known for the supply of splicers and dryers to web offset printers. However, recent Contiweb developments for digital web printing in affiliation with HP will be of particular interest to drupa visitors. Examples from the Contiweb digital unwinder and rewinder series will be running on a number of stands at drupa 2016.

Also part of Contiweb technologies is JetWeb’s industry-leading finishing systems and VITS-Rotocut sheeting and specialized finishing components, both of which will be a focus on the Goss drupa stand.
Goss representatives will be on hand to demonstrate and discuss the benefits of working with a company that offers such a comprehensive solution.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
