Goss International Acquires Assets of Vits Print
DURHAM, NH—Goss International has acquired the assets of Vits Print GmbH, adding sheeting and specialized finishing components that complement its portfolio of Goss web offset print production solutions. VITS-America Inc., located in Blauvelt, NY, is not part of the acquisition.
Vits Print Rotocut sheeter models and Jet Web finishing products, including coaters, diecutters, prefolders and plow stations, will now be manufactured at the Goss International Contiweb facility in Boxmeer, The Netherlands. The facility specializes in auxiliary components, including Goss splicers, pasters and heatset dryers, for web offset printing systems.
“Vits Print is the technology and market leader for high-speed sheeters as well as in-line and off-line finishing systems,” explains Goss International President and CEO Jochen Meissner. “This sensible expansion of our core product range demonstrates our long-term focus and our commitment to providing printers with more complete, integrated web offset solutions.”
Auxiliary components from Goss International and Vits Print can be integrated within Goss press systems, as well as press systems manufactured by other suppliers for web offset, gravure and flexography applications, including packaging and direct mail. Vits Print products will be marketed and supported by VITS-America Inc. in the United States and by Goss International’s worldwide network throughout the rest of the world.
