Replacing old equipment with new ones, upgrading and re-equipping earlier installed machines is an on-going process. And it is especially important that there is a strong potential of new newspaper factories using Manugraph printing machines being established in the regions.
On the strength of a deep knowledge of the newspaper printing market's specifics and technical capabilities of the Manugraph printing equipment Vneshmultigraph is in the position to make uniquely advantageous proposals to its customers.
The invaluable experience of Vneshmultigraph, accumulated over the last 27 years, and a training center established on the basis of the "VMG-Print" newspaper printing house allows for indentifying and foreseeing problems that printing houses may face in the course of production as well as offering customers all the necessary assistance and support in solving these problems.

VMG-Print printing house was founded in 2003 and for 13 years has been working in the field of newspaper printing.
The first web offset printing press practically without automation was installed in 2003 in order to demonstrate Manugraph’s equipment to customers in operation. The equipment was delivered by "Vneshmultigraph" company. Printing house’s site has also become a training center, wh ere technicians and printers from all over Russia and CIS countries were trained for operation and service of Manugraph printing presses.
Three years later it was decided to upgrade the enterprise, and the printing house moved to a new larger building in Podolsk, wh ere three CityLine Express printing towers manufactured by Manugraph were placed. This printing line successfully worked over further years.
