ImPressions awarded hot press agency following visit

Burlington, Washington, based ImPressions Worldwide has been appointed to sell Goss Graphic Systems China's presses in the USA, Canada and South America.

The agreement covers the innovative single-width Compact tower, 16-page heatset, book and variable repeat packaging presses, backed up by parts and service.

The range - also marketed under the Wisprint brand - was launched globally in GXpress last November.

Goss China is a subsidiary of Shanghai Electric Group, operating from an ultra-modern 37,000 m2 manufacturing facility in Shanghai. "They are fulfilling orders for new presses at a stunning rate, with more than 40 presses sold last year," says ImPressions' Tom Loesch.

He says it is "naturally fitting" that ImPressions should be the agent of choice for sales for USA, Canada and South America.

"This partnership broadens the ability to offer new and rebuilt presses or any combination or configuration of full press lines, including parts and service."
