Goss International, a U.S.-based worldwide leader in web offset and publishing technology, has appointed Mohit Uberoi as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. Uberoi joins Goss having previously served as President and CEO at B&W Megtec. He joined Megtec in 1997 and led the business from 2003 to 2015. He has significant experience overseeing the transformation of global industrial mid‐market companies with multiple product lines and global locations.
“It’s our pleasure to announce that Mohit Uberoi has joined Goss as President and Chief Executive Officer effective immediately,” said Sparsh Bhargava of AIP (American Industrial Partners), who purchased Goss in August of this year. “Under Mohit’s leadership we’re excited about this next stage in the company’s history. As a long-standing industry professional, Mohit is ideally suited to join Goss as its leader. He has a strong appreciation for the strengths of the company, its employees, customers and products. With his printing industry background, Mohit has a deep understanding of the many challenges facing the broader industry. He is a transformational leader, with a proven track record of making businesses successful.”
Prior to joining Megtec, Uberoi worked in research and new business development for W.R. Grace & Co., a diversified industrial conglomerate. He earned a B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology before moving to the United States to pursue his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Arizona. “I’m delighted to join Goss at such a pivotal time and look forward to working with American Industrial Partners, our management team, and employees to build a customer responsive, financially strong company with great products and services,” he added.
Breakthrough Goss Sunday web press technology celebrated 20 years in 2013 and continues to grow. Twenty-two years ago, a U.S. commercial printing company brought the first-ever Goss Sunday web press with its gapless-blanket technology into production. Today, there are over 2,300 Sunday press installations worldwide. The original Sunday 3000 press model instantly gave printers a way to nearly double output while improving print quality and reducing paper waste. Replacing traditional flat blankets with cylindrical Sunday press blankets that slide over the blanket cylinders from the sides eliminated gap-related vibration (which reduced streaking), allowing up to 100,000 impressions per hour instead of the previous 75,000. At the same time, the stability also allowed single-circumference web widths to be extended from the traditional four magazine pages across the cylinder to six pages and eventually to eight pages.
Brothers Fred and Sam Goss founded the Goss Printing Press Company in Chicago, Illinois more than 170 years ago. Their goal was to align the newest technology with customer needs. That vision has spawned a host of groundbreaking solutions in the web offset sector. These include not just its Gapless Sunday Presses, but also Automatic Transfer technology for continuous production, Autoplate automatic plate changing, DigiRail digital inking, Ecocool energy-saving heatset dryers, FPS and CPS Compact Tower Presses, Goss Web Center advanced digital workflow solutions, Magnapak targeted newspaper packaging, the M-600 Folia high-productivity alternative to sheetfed, Pacesetter saddlestitchers, and many, many more.
