manroland Goss Americas centralizes bindery and post-press equipment support at Durham facility
manroland Goss Americas, a subsidiary of manroland Goss web systems GmbH, the leading web offset press manufacturer, has relocated its bindery and post-press equipment service organization in Effingham, Illinois to its Americas headquarters located in Durham, New Hampshire.

The consolidation of service competence at a central location in Durham will provide customers with the proven manroland Goss service offering from a single source. This structural reorganization will enable the service teams to respond even faster and more efficiently to individual customer requirements.
“While we will dearly miss some of our teammates and our connection to the Effingham community, we are very excited about the positive impact this transition will have on our business” states Dave Soden, Managing Director of manroland Goss Americas. “By leveraging the experience and expertise of our Durham based engineering teams, we will be well positioned to provide tailored retrofits and support obsolescence management of our customers post-press equipment, helping them extend the life of their assets and maximize overall equipment performance”.
