MDGM Sees Sales in South America, Africa

By: E&P Staff Manugraph DGM Inc. in Elizabethville, Pa., has posted several press orders in South America and Africa.

"Despite the global economic situation, we are continuing to find success in these emerging international markets," International Sales Vice President Ron Ehrhardt said in a statement.

Orders in Brazil include a 12-unit, one-folder Cityline Express press to Jornal a Gazeta in Cuiaba, a four-unit, one-folder Cityline Express press to Tribuna do Norte in Apucarana, and a four-unit, one-folder Cityline for Diario do Nordeste in Fortaleza.

The 35,000-cph Cityline Express has been installed at 16 sites this decade.

Jornal a Gazeta also will install an ultraviolet curing system on one four-high tower. MDGM has UV technology at more than 30 installations worldwide, according to Ehrhardt.

In Tanzania, Manugraph secured an order for a 20-unit, two-folder 45,000cph Hiline Express from Mwananchi Communications Ltd., a subsidiary of Nation Media Group. Mwananchi publishes three newspapers: Mwananchi (the top-selling Swahili paper); Mwanaspoti (the country's top seller) and The Citizen, an English-language title.

Earlier this year, Academy Press, Lagos, Nigeria bought a two-unit one-folder MDGM 430MAX press for the publication of textbooks. The 45,000-cph press is the third sold since its introduction at Drupa 2008.
