The new press will enable Grupo Gondi to increase their competitive edge with more profitable print runs for mainstream, medium-run, packaging jobs.

Contributing to Mexico’s growing leadership position in the print and packaging industry, Grupo Gondi’s decision to invest in press from Landa will provide a unique service offering in the region, enabling valuable differentiation and new business opportunities. The company’s new Nanographic Printing capability will also give Latin American print buyers more flexibility in run length choices, as well as increased color vibrancy.

Eduardo Posada, CEO, Grupo Gondi comments: “Being in tune with what we know our customers want and need, we quickly recognized the potential of Nanography® to deliver it – reinforcing our brand promise of Sexy Boxes®. With its unique proposition, we fully expect the Landa S10 to transform the packaging industry by enabling B1 short to medium-run length jobs at high speeds, delivering shorter time to market and a serious reduction in print’s environmental impact.”

The Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press is set to be installed at Grupo Gondi’s new Monterrey plant by the end of 2019. The company’s multi-plant approach and fully integrated operation will allow the Landa S10 press to be enjoyed across the group, offering printed jobs on any off the shelf paper, and recycled or virgin based board.

Engineered for the packaging and converting industries, the single-sided B1 (41 in. / 1,050 mm) format Landa S10 Nanographic PrintingPress enables just-in-time mainstream efficiency for the production of folding carton, POP/POS, and corrugated boxes. It also prints 6,500 large-format (B1 / 41 in.) sheets/hr on off-the-shelf substrates in thickness from 2.4-32 pt. (60-800μm).
