|Europrinter society was founded in November 1993, a subsidiary of two groups (French and Spanish) specializes in the printing world.|
|We currently print 10 titles every day of the week:|
which are added four titles specific to Sunday:
The Mail on Sunday,
The Sun of Sunday,
The Sunday Times,
The Sunday Telegraph.
|Enjoying a particularly good location and highly skilled staff, we are able to offer our customers an early delivery of their daily according to the criteria of quality and speed that satisfy the most demanding.|
|The company's business is printing "just in time" of foreign newspapers distributed in Belgium and Europe.|
|It should be noted that the role of society is only to print, there is no newsroom.|
|The manufacturing process is as follows:|
| 1 - Receiving a production order that|
specifies the number of copies and
2 - Reception of pages in the form of
computer files, transmitted over
3 - Preparation of plates for printing''
4 - Printing, black, or color, depending
on the title
5 - Insertion of supplements manual or
6 - Preparation of labeling packets with
different destinations in office
7 - Discount packages for shippers and
|This process is carried out 7 days because most of the seven titles we also print a Sunday edition.|
Work teams are composed as follows: a driver, assistant driver, paraprofessional and versatile. The scheme of work teams is 6 days on and 3 days off. The only closing day is December 24th!
|Strengths and originality of the company|
|Besides the graphic tradition of our region that allows us to quickly qualified staff, the location of Gosselies, in the center of Europe, was a determining factor in the choice of investors, and remains today a attractive pole in our industry.|
Punctuality in finishing the work is undoubtedly the most important element because the 'new' arriving late, do not interest anyone. The production cycle is timed and carefully recorded every night, since the task force must meet particularly strict and demanding schedules.
To achieve this performance daily, we have made substantial human and financial efforts in training our staff, to enable him to acquire the versatility needed in a company of our size and this type of work.
