Web offset printing manufacturer and service provider manroland Goss web systems Group (MGWS) has completed the acquisition of GWS Printing Systems (GWS), a Dutch specialist of used web offset equipment. The two companies have closely cooperated in the past for used equipment, heatset press service and within the Market-X e-commerce platform launched by MGWS last year.

“Teaming our forces and solutions will result in an even broader portfolio to the printing industry worldwide. We expect the used equipment market and related services to grow within the next years, so adding GWS gives us the chance to become an even stronger and broader supplier in this business area,” says Alexander Wassermann, CEO of manroland Goss.

Current GWS owners Eric van Kessel and Walter Donkers will continue as managers of the business.

“The graphic industry is facing constant change and it is obvious that suppliers seek to cooperate. Being part of the manroland Goss Group will allow us to develop and accelerate our growth plan for the business, increase market presence and support the MGWS business strategy in the new setup,” they say.
