Enterprise Nationale Des Artes Graphiques (ENAG), located in Wilaya d’Alger, is the biggest printer and bookbinder government company in Algeria, with about 500 employees.

The company is specialized in the production of novels, school books and religious books, being one of the 7 printers authorized by the State to produce the Koran.

Enag has recently invested in asterTOP, the first installation of this model both in Algeria and in North Africa.

“asterTOP was the ideal solution for our production requirements. We were looking for a machine able to meet our needs in term of format and performance”, confirmed Mr. Hamladji, sales director of Enag. “We also decided to invest in Meccanotecnica’s product because of the efficient after sales service and the good reputation of the aster brand.”
