After a tour through Goss Contiweb we asked our questions to Evert an important employee of Goss Contiweb. Choice of the company: We couldn’t choose the company ourselves, because the teacher “Hans Steen man” did that.
He did that because, he knows things better and he knows where the IBS students were doing their work placement. When I heard that our company was Goss Contiweb and that Ilhan was our IBS student, I was happy because I know who Ilhan is, so it was more comfortable for me to go to the company.

Is the M-600 Every day, over the hole world, printers are using the M-600 TM press to produce high quality print. The M-600 press has become the universal reference on the 16-page commercial market and offers the highest sales in its category. The M-600 press is designed for the highest quality. Goss Contiweb isn’t a wholesaler it’s a producer. Because they are specialised in only two things the press and the dryer and those two things became the M-600.

Working conditions: The working environment of Goss Contiweb is very clean because every week a cleaner visits the company and in the company everything is arranged well. The hours of work vary: if you work at the office you work from nine to five but if you work as a fitter then you have flexible work hours because there isn’t always work for a fitter. The employers of Goss Contiweb are paid monthly and if the company has made a profit at the end of the year every employee gets a bonus. Goss Contiweb doesn’t have difficulties with the job security because there is enough work in the graphic industry. Training and development: Goss thinks training is an important thing. If you get the job then you don’t know anything about the equipment and in which way you must do your work.
Because you have never seen some thing like a M-600 so with training you learn more about the equipment and in which way everything in the business works. For Goss Contiweb it is also a profit to have trained employees and it can also work motivating towards the employees. Customer safety must be paramount. All customers have a right to expect from Goss Contiweb to take all reasonable precautions to ensure their safety and well-being. Even when there is an element of danger involved, Goss Contiweb must take measures. The way they do it: .
