Mohamad Baajour has been appointed sales manager of Harland Simon Trading Gulf L.L.C. for the Persian Gulf region. Harland Simon also was retained for a prss-controls project in New Zealand.
An electrical engineer with five years of experience in the United Arab Emirates, Baajour will cover the full range of Harland Simon solutions, which includes control and automation of newspaper printing, radio-frequency identification in the healthcare sector, and uninterrupted power supply systems for wide variety of industries.
The Dominion Post, Fairfax group’s daily in Wellington, New Zealand, has completed a substantial press-controls upgrade with Harland Simon, Milton Keynes, England, and Oak Brook, Ill. It is a complete overhaul of a system Harland Simon supplied the paper in the late 1980s.
The new system has three Prima 6000 control desks, a Prima MS press-management system and Harland Simon’s presetting and content-proofing systems, and has been in production since December 2007. In the project’s recently completed final phase, Harland Simon worked with Goss International to integrate a new Uniliner tower with the existing T70/HT70 press line. The object was to extend the printing equipment’s useful life by many years for less than replacement cost.
