Man­roland web sys­tems and Goss In­ter­na­tional, both long-time web off­set print­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers and ser­vice providers, have com­pleted the trans­ac­tion to merge their busi­nesses. The new com­pany will op­er­ate un­der the name “man­roland Goss web sys­tems.”

Alexan­der Wasser­mann, CEO of man­roland web sys­tems, will be­come CEO of the new com­pany with more than 1,000 em­ploy­ees and global head­quar­ters in Augs­burg, Ger­many. The com­pany’s North Amer­i­can head­quar­ters will be in Durham, New Hamp­shire. Mo­hit Uberoi, pre­vi­ous CEO of Goss In­ter­na­tional, will stay con­nected with the busi­ness as a board mem­ber.

The share­hold­ers of man­roland web sys­tems and Goss In­ter­na­tional, the Lubeck-based Possehl Group and New York-based Amer­i­can In­dus­trial Part­ners re­spec­tively, will both re­main share­hold­ers of the new com­pany sup­port­ing the estab­lished busi­ness-build­ing strat­egy.

The Con­ti­web busi­ness and the man­roland web pro­duc­tion busi­ness are not in­cluded in this trans­ac­tion and will stay in­de­pen­dent as AIP and Possehl port­fo­lio com­pa­nies, re­spec­tively.

"Both man­roland web sys­tems and Goss In­ter­na­tional were on a sus­tain­able path to suc­cess,” said Wasser­mann. “We will strengthen this path by in­creas­ing our global reach, con­tin­u­ing our in­no­va­tive and fo­cused R&D ac­tiv­i­ties, and en­hanc­ing our mar­ket pres­ence through tar­geted con­sol­i­da­tion. Our cus­tomers will be able to choose from an even broader port­fo­lio of prod­ucts and ser­vices, sup­ported by the in­dus­try lead­ing e-com­merce plat­form MAR­KET-X.”
