December 19, 2017 – People’s Daily, the largest newspaper group in China, has completed a major press relocation of its Goss Universal 75 press to a new, state-of-the-art printing facility in Beijing.
Goss were selected by People’s Daily as the original manufacturer of the Universal 75 press model to project manage the entire job, which took twelve weeks to complete.
Goss engineers project managed and supervised the relocation of the six-tower Universal 75 and worked together with People’s Daily employees and local teams to provide the most cost-effective solution for the company.
Ian Buckley, General Manager at Goss UK, comments, “Goss has a long relationship with People’s Daily. We listened to what they wanted and put together an economical solution using Goss’ knowledge and engineers to supervise the technical aspects of the move and ensure a smooth transition for the company.”
The People’s Daily is the leading newspaper in China and is published worldwide with a print circulation of three million. As well as Chinese, editions are published in English, Japanese, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Tibetan, Kazakh, Uyghur, Zhuang, Mongolian, and Korean.
The Universal 75 consists of six towers, two folders and six reel splicers and will continue to be used to produce high-quality newspaper products for the Chinese market.
As well as the relocation, the Goss Universal press has been upgraded with a blanket wash system and Goss will provide control system integration.
