Goss Community SSC press launches color expansion in Yemen


   •   14th October Foundation government printing operation enhances color
       capabilities
   •   Opportunity to increase circulation of leading daily titles

December 20th 2010 – The inauguration of a new Goss Community SSC press at
the 14th October Foundation for Journalism, Printing and Publishing in Aden City,
Yemen, was officiated on November 22nd 2010 by the Yemeni vice president, Abdu
Rabbu Mansoor Hadi. In a ceremony broadcast via national media channels and
reported in the state press, Hadi announced a new benchmark for color and
automation in Yemen.

Referencing new levels of speed and control, vice president Hadi mentioned the
user-friendly design of the Goss technology, which will easily handle the increasing
circulation and pagination requirements of key titles printed at 14th October
Foundation, particularly that of the flagship broadsheet newspaper of the same
name.

The new press – the second Community SSC system at the 14th October
Foundation facility – has been installed to boost paging and color capacity and will
fulfill a number of new advertising contracts from real estate and telecommunications
companies. The new press has two four-high and two two-high towers, six
reelstands and a Goss N40 folder and is configured to provide flexibility for future
expansion. With a cut-off of 578 mm the publisher is now capable of printing 24
pages broadsheet, including eight in four color, as well as a new 12-page sports
supplement also comprising eight color pages.

Currently printing around 20,000 copies per day of government-owned 14th October
as well as a range of Yemeni tabloid newspapers, the 14th October Foundation has
ambitious growth plans. The company estimates the new press line has the capacity
to print approximately 60 percent of the total volume of printed newspapers in the
whole of Aden city.
                                                                                  News Release




According to the Foundation’s chairman Ahmed Al-hubaishi, the attendance of Abdu
Rabbu Mansoor Hadi at the inauguration of the new press denotes the significance
of the newspaper for the national populace. “As in most countries, electronic media
have become a popular source of news and information, but the newspaper
continues to constitute the primary and most accessible means of reliable,
meaningful communication across our very broad and diverse population. We have
a great responsibility here in Yemen and this latest investment indicates our
enduring commitment to the task ahead.”

Founded in January 1968 and named after the revolution in the South of Yemen on
14th October 1967, the Foundation has range of sheetfed and postpress equipment
in addition to its web presses, printing a variety of books, magazines, brochures,
flyers and general advertising materials.
