For over 90 years, National Press in Amman, Jordan has been providing high quality, cost effective print and print finishing solutions to its customers world-wide. NP is the largest industrial printer in Jordan. Focusing on books and magazines and at one point in time, NP consumed 50% of the entire paper consumption in the printing industry of Jordan.
At present, NP’s very impressive, clean and efficiently run premises is the home to more than 50 Heidelberg printing units in different machine designs and formats, 2 GOSS 16-page Web-Offset lines, a string of post-press equipment and a full pre-press environment that includes different digital printing solutions as well as CTP.
NP is an important customer to Glunz & Jensen. Two HDX Thermal 85 lines have been outputting plates from from two Kodak Trendsetters - feeding the press room for many years. NP produces on average 200 plates per day.
The HDX's never fail
“The HDX’s never fail”, states Omar Samman, Senior Vice President, Director of Production at NP.
“They are totally reliable and have been so ever since we acquired them in 2008”, Omar continues: “In fact, we work them so hard in our 24x7 operation that we hardly have time for the perfect maintenance we strive for. But regardless, the HDX’s just run”.
Omar continues: “I truly value the partnership with Glunz & Jensen and look for new business opportunities with them. They are the premier plate processor manufacturer in the world”.
Dan Wissing and Per Arild from Glunz & Jensen left National Press impressed by the thought that just two single HDX’s can support such a prestigious and large operation; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Without failing!
