Israel’s largest media company, Yedioth Ahronoth Group, has been a customer of Koenig & Bauer for nearly three decades, according to Koenig & Bauer. Their latest project with the German company was the moving of two Commander machines from the north of Israel into the main print shop in Rishon-le-Zion, a suburb of Tel Aviv.
Five Commander presses by Koenig & Bauer are now standing in the main print shop. The two Commander sections that were moved comprise six reelstands and six H-build printing towers with web widths of up to 1,520 mm. The systems are equipped with a Patras reel supply, six Pastostar RC reelstands and two KF5 folders.
Yedioth Ahronoth Group was founded 80 years ago. The daily newspaper Jedi´ot Acharonot is the flagship of Yedioth Ahronoth Group, which is majority-owned by the Mozes family. The group publishes a daily newspaper, local newspapers, magazines and digital content (Ynet).
