The printing company Masar Printing & Publishing in Dubai successfully renewed their certification for standardised priting in 2016.

Masar is printing a number of newspaper titles, one of them is Al Bayan, a leading newspapers in the UAE. The newspaper has a wide reader-base that includes senior CEOs and policymakers.

As a member of DMI, Al Bayan is printed at “MASAR Printing & Pub- lishing”, the leading high quality printing & publishing. MASAR’s Manroland Cromoman 70 semi commercial is set up with 4 heatset and 12 coldset towers. It houses four dryers and after burners plus three state-of- the art folder units to cater for folding flexibly according to the job with staggering speed of 70 000 cph.

INCQC and Ceertification for Standardised Printing has given Masar a lot of scope to improve the quality of our printed products. Also it has provided the opportunity to get a confirmation from an independent organisation on printing to high quality standards. It is a validation for the staff that they are performing well and conform to ISO standards. It also helps Masar demonstrate to their print customers that they can consistently produce a high quality product.
