Goss teams up with DG Press

Goss has expanded its packaging reach by acquiring DG press Services’ Thallo product line. Thallo, which was announced last year and is due to be officially launched at the drupa show.

Thallo is a hybrid web offset printing system specifically designed for the efficient production of high-quality, flexible packaging. It can handle a wide range of substrates, uses a cost-effective sleeve system and includes the latest motion controls and easy-to-use operator interfaces.

DG press will continue to manufacture the Thallo press platform and will sell the system in Europe, whilst Goss will market it across North and South America, Africa and Asia Pacific.

Bert Schoonderbeek, Managing Director, Goss Europe, said that Thallo would be a good fit for the Goss portfolio, adding: “In addition, DG press’ extensive technical and market knowledge makes them the ideal partner to continue to drive the adoption of web offset technology in the packaging sector. Both companies will work together on joint development activities which will benefit both the Thallo and Vpak models.”
