Modern Arab Establishment for Printing and Publishing has opted for a used Rotoman press that is going to be moved from Bechtle Druck, Germany, to its headquarters in Cairo, Egypt. For the relocation and implementation, the Egyptian printer chose GWS Printing Systems (GWS) and manroland Goss as their preferred partners.

Modern Arab is known as the oldest private printing company in Egypt and is one of the largest publishers and printers of school books in the country. The Rotoman press for Modern Arab Establishment is the third press supplied by manroland Goss subsidiary GWS since 2015.

The used Rotoman press from 2001 shows a cylinder circumference of 630 mm, a maximum web width of 965 mm and prints with a speed of 65.000 cyl.c/h. It is a four-unit press with one web, one dryer and a folder for quarterfold production.

The dismantling was carried out by a joint team of technicians provided by the client, manroland Goss and a GWS supervisor. The technical project management has been in the hands of manroland Goss and GWS as well.
