Tellurian Publication House has installed a five-colour KBA Rapida 75 coater.

This according to KBA's local distributor, Giffin Graphics.

The Dubai-based publication house took delivery of the Rapida 75 shortly after Gulf Print in April this year with installation taking "around two weeks", according to director Elie Zakka.

The company's search for new kit began last year when Zakka embarked on a trip to Düsseldorf, Germany to track down a new machine. Initially considering a medium-format perfector, Zakka made the decision to go for the Rapida 75 due to its speed and efficiency. Tellurian Publication House specialises in its own line of customised diaries as well as books, catalogues, calendars, posters, brochures, magazines and annual reports.

Its clients include banks, advertising agencies, financial companies, ministries, schools, real estate and pharmaceutical companies across the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

Speaking of the Rapida 75, Zakka said:  “The speed, fast makeready and ease of operation of the Rapida press are precisely what we need. We print jobs of between 100 and over 200,000 copies and now we will even be able to handle last-minute jobs. We're certain our Rapida 75 will help us satisfy our customers further."
