With steady business growth calling for an increase in production capacity, leading Mexican commercial printer Infagon Web S.A. has decided to invest in a new M-600 press system from Goss. The new press will complement a wide array of both sheetfed and web presses to meet a specific need for premium-quality print in short- to mid-range run lengths.
According to Infagon’s owner Serafin González, his company’s excellent and longstanding relationship with Goss meant that the press supplier was comfortably in lead position when considering a new web offset investment. “Over the ten years that we have been operating Goss presses, we have developed a very strong rapport with the Goss team and their technology, and our existing presses continue to serve us well. Nevertheless, for an investment of this scale, it is essential to remain objective – the automation and consistent high-quality of the M-600 press were crucial in the decision.”
Due for installation in 2015 into Infagon’s main facility in Mexico City, the new M-600 press is rated at speeds up to 55,000 impressions per hour and will feature a 965mm web width and 578mm cut-off. It will be configured with a JF55 folder and Ecocool dryer and incorporates a range of automation technology.
“More and more, our clients are employing print as a prestige product,” continues González. “This means that quality needs to be higher than ever, and in lower volumes for a more select, targeted distribution. With this is mind, we have chosen a versatile, agile and cost-effective press system that can even accommodate run-lengths previously only in the sheetfed domain.”
A pioneer in its field, Infagon was the first printer in Mexico to invest in gapless printing technology, installing a four-unit Goss Sunday 2000 press in 2007. This was followed up with a five-unit Goss Sunday 2000 press in 2009. The company was founded in 2002 and today employs 350 people, producing the full range of commercial products, including catalogs, magazines, directories, calendars, books and brochures. Infagon Web is repeatedly recognized for its high-quality, and has won awards both nationally and internationally, including from Printing Industries of America, the Union of Industrial Lithographers of Mexico and Theobald De Nigris Foundation.
Commenting on the order, Goss sales manager for Latin America, Leonardo Clavijo, concludes: “This order is a great endorsement for Goss as it underlines our longstanding successful relationship with a valued partner. As a company, Infagon prides itself on being ahead of the field in terms of technology and customer service – and they have very exacting standards! Clearly, it is a point of great pride to Goss to know that we enjoy their high regard in both these respects.”
