Goss acquires Graphic Automation Controls

In a bid to unify its aftermarket services network, Goss International acquired Graphic Automation Controls Inc. in an asset transaction. The move also serves to enhance Goss’ drive and controls upgrade capabilities. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

GAC focuses on full PLC integration and control systems upgrades for printing and packaging presses. GAC also provides on-site service support, fill-in plant maintenance and press audit services. Additionally, GAC specializes in obsolete and hard-to-find electrical parts for the printing and packaging industries.

“Goss is focused on growing our aftermarket and service business for our installed base,” said Stan Blakney, CEO of Goss. “This is the first of many expansions of those capabilities we see in the near term.”
