About Us

Newsprint Namibia, previously John Meinert Newsprint, was the first pioneering newspaper printing company in Namibia. Newsprint Namibia printed its very first newspaper, Der Kriegsbote, in 1917. It became the Allgemeine Zeitung in 1918 and is currently still printed by Newsprint Namibia.

Newsprint Namibia has grown and developed along with printed media, in an independent Namibia, to become the well-established web offset printer it is today, employing 150 people, most of whom have been trained in-house.
Newsprint Namibia is committed to produce printed products of the highest standard and continues to invest in the technical and human resources necessary to maintain and ever improve this status quo.
