GWS Printing Systems (GWS), the manroland Goss subsidiary for press relocations and used equipment, just finished successfully relocating a commercial Lithoman press in the Netherlands in record time.

Thom Ringsma, owner of magazine printer Habo da Costa in Vianen, Netherlands, decided to restart a closed location in Doetinchem to strengthen his printing business. At the same time, the assets of a printing plant in Weert were taken over by Ringsma, which is where GWS Printing Systems was contracted to sell the equipment on behalf of the holding company. The project saw a used Lithoman 72-pages moved from Weert to Doetinchem to start production there on a tight timeline.

The relocation was made and in just over four months, the press was up and running again at Senefelder Misset Doetinchem B.V. The start-up and training at the new location was performed by specialists from manroland Goss Augsburg under the project management of GWS colleagues based in Waalwijk.
