Semi-commercial press for El Financiero

KBA Comet for El FinancieroMexico's premier financial newspaper El Financiero has ordered a KBA Comet semi-commercial newspaper press from GWS Printing Systems. Manuel Arroyo, President from El Financiero has big plans, starting with a boost to the quality and looks of the newspaper.

A first step in these plans is to replace the current, outdated, printing press. But El Financiero's wishes go beyond traditional coldset printing. They also want the option to print books and semi-commercial products.

After careful consideration management decided to order the press at GWS Printing Systems in The Netherlands. According to the decision makers the Dutch put forward a comprehensive offer, which not only met the required press configuration but was a total package including service activities.

'GWS will deliver a reconditioned machine including installation and the necessary warranties. They will also be working in close cooperation with KBA, who originally built this machine', says a spokesman at El Financiero.

The KBA Comet is currently being reconditioned by GWS and will be shipped this summer. Installation in Mexico City by the specialists of GWS Machinery Care is scheduled for the second half of 2013.
