Annex Business Media acquires two new manufacturing titles
Annex Business Media has acquired two new manufacturing titles -- Industrial Products & Process Technology and Process West -- both assets of Swan Erickson Publishing.
IPP&T addresses the process products and technology information needs of more than 24,500 process engineers, managers, consultants, purchasing agents and R&D personnel. Process West regionally serves a similar audience of over 10,500 processors in Western Canada.
Michael Swan, owner at Swan Erickson, is working with Annex for the foreseeable future to transition the brands.
"This acquisition is a natural fit for Annex,” says Annex Business Media COO Ted Markle. “IPPT and Process West will give us a strong foothold in the important Canadian process industry, which includes oil & gas, mining, pulp & paper and food processing. These sectors are lynchpins in our manufacturing economy. They are respected brands with a long history of success and they clearly complement our market presence with our existing manufacturing group."
Annex is Canada’s largest business-to-business media company, with 65 brands serving markets from agriculture and manufacturing to resources and professions. The private company’s growing list of offerings includes print, websites, e-news, e-marketing, events, webinars, video, research, printing services, book distribution, and data rental.
