Goss and Alwan in Cooperative Effort


DURHAM, NH | Goss International has agreed to a strategic cooperation with graphic software provider Alwan Color Expertise. Reportedly, the agreement will ensure repeatable color accuracy for the Goss Sunday Vpak press users across all applications including labels, carton and board, and flexible package printing.

According to Mike D'Angelo, managing director of Goss International Americas, Goss has recognized a pressing need for color consistency standards within the packaging sector since entering the market in 2012. "This is particularly critical when using special ink formulations and substrates that have been specified by brand owners, often with little regard for the technical challenges involved. In response to this need, we have identified Alwan as the perfect fit for [us], complementing our own product design expertise with their established ISO development credentials."

As a result of the new cooperation, customers for the Goss Sunday Vpak series will benefit from a complete turnkey package printing solution including hardware, software, installation, training, and ISO certification. Software solutions provided will include on-press color matching, press calibration, and print proofing and verification, all of which are available for CMYK and extended gamut printing, spot color, and HiFi color production.

Alwan's training capabilities were a key aspect of the agreement for Goss. Through its Academy of Color Expertise (ACE), customers can receive technical and sales training, installation, and integration services, as well as certification of individual operators and of facilities. Working with partner organization Kee Consultants Alwan is also able to offer technical consultancy, including workflow audits to help customers establish best practice for achieving stable processes and implementing ISO standards.
