Ganeca Exact, Indonesia, orders fifth Goss Community press in two years
  • Increased government spending in education prompts double press investment

October 1st, 2007 – With its third Goss Community press just up and running in Jakarta, Indonesian book publisher, Ganeca Exact, has signed a further contract with Goss International for its fourth and fifth Community SSC presses. The presses have been ordered to meet growing market requirements for the production of school books.

“Most of our products are for high schools and junior schools,” comments K. Suardhana, founder of Ganeca Exact. “Having realized that education has been neglected for a number of years, the Indonesian government is now committed to this area, and so has increased its spending,” he confirms.

As one of the largest school book publishers in Indonesia, Ganeca Exact, based in Bandung, enjoyed a 15 percent market share in 2006 with a total of 15 million books printed. Its first Community press was installed in 2005. With the third Community press now in production, and the two new presses going into production at the end of the year, the company expects a leap in annual production to 25 million pieces and an even greater market share.

Each new Community SSC press will consist of two four-high printing towers, one SSC folder with quarter folder capability and two splicers.

Confidence and past experience with the Shanghai manufactured Goss Community SSC press was the decisive factor for this latest investment. “These presses meet all our requirements. They are easy to operate with good print quality, fast turnarounds and the price is right. This has made us very competitive in the market,” confirmed Suardhana.

Besides performance and technology, Suardhana also cites the reliable service he has received from Goss International local agent, Web Sistim Servis, as a key factor for the purchase. “We have a very good relationship with the local Goss agent. The reliable support we receive from them assures us that products and technology from Goss International are a safe bet.”

The Goss Community SSC press has been the press of choice for thousands of printers, producing a wide variety of products including newspapers, books and inserts. More than 40,000 printing units have been installed worldwide.
