manroland web systems and Goss International Complete Business Combination
A business combination of manroland web systems and Goss International („Goss“) of complementary business activities has now been completed on August 17, 2018.
The new company will operate under the brand name ‘ manroland Goss web systems’ and will be the strongest supplier to web printing companies worldwide. Alexander Wassermann, CEO of manroland web systems, will become CEO of the new company with global headquarters in Augsburg, Germany. Mohit Uberoi, previous CEO of Goss International, will stay connected with the business as a board member and assist the management team with business integration. The Contiweb business as well as the manroland web production business are not included in this transaction and will stay independent as AIP and Possehl portfolio companies, respectively. The shareholders of manroland web systems and Goss International, the Lübeck-based Possehl Group and NY-based American Industrial Partners (AIP) respectively, will both remain shareholders of the new combined company supporting the continued business-building strategy.
manroland Goss web systems will concentrate on four main business areas: System Solutions (highly automated press and post-press equipment including pre-owned offerings, press relocations), Engineered Solutions (mechanical, automation and closed-loop solutions for all types of presses), Service Solutions (best-in-class service in parts, labor, tele-support and performance based service agreements) and E-Commerce Solutions (electronic marketplace for efficient ordering and logistics performance for all suppliers to the web offset industry). The starting point for the merger is promising, with the new company relying on the combined expertise of its 1000+ employees and its suppliers. Both manroland web systems and Goss will leverage their successful structural and technological developments in recent years within new product development, expansive aftermarket product offerings and development of a lean business structure in line with overall market trends to build a strong business platform for the future.
With its broad range of products and services, the new company will be the high-performance partner for all web printers. The common goal is to support the performance of customers with a ‘best of the best’ approach.
