Free Press Begins $2.4M Press Renovation
It is an exciting time at FreePressMedia. We are rebuilding our press. The big makeover of our 45-year old Goss Metro press began this week and will continue through the end of April. Ours is among the oldest presses in the entire Gannett Co. Yet, the $2.4 million we are investing in our downtown (Burlington, VT) production facility will make the press run like it is the newest in the company.
So far, the crew has removed and recycled four cylinders from one unit of the press. Each cylinder weighs two tons. There are 26 cylinders on this Goss press.
