FT into Africa

FT into Africa

The Financial Times has opened a printing plant in South Africa, giving the financial community in Johannesburg the international edition on the morning of publication.

Until now only locally printed digital copies, a trial by the publisher, have been available in the country but full offset printing has begun this week.

Zach Leonard, managing director of Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: "Given the increase in sales of the Financial Times in South Africa and the ever growing popularity of FT.com we felt the need to offer our customers a better service."

Other cities with dedicated printing facilities include Miami, Seoul, Tokyo, Dubai and Atlanta.
