Intermedia acquires Australian Printer

Australian Printer, ProPrint and New Zealand Printer will join one of Australia’s largest business to business publishers, The Intermedia Group, following the acquisition of the magazines, news websites and events previously owned by Sydney-based Printer Magazines Group.

All editorial, advertising and design staff have become employees of a new company, Printer Media Group, majority-owned by The Intermedia Group based in Glebe.

The acquisition will provide Intermedia with immediate market leadership in another key business-to-business industry vertical.

Intermedia Group Publisher, James Wells, a significant shareholder in Printer Media Group, will be Managing Director of the new business.

Long-serving Group Publisher, Brian Moore, will remain with the business alongside National Sales Manager, Carmen Ciappara, as well as the editorial and graphic design team including Paul Brescia, Sarah Simpkins and Carrie Tong in Australia as well as Bruce Craig in New Zealand.

Australian Printer, ProPrint and New Zealand Printer will benefit from the scale offered by Intermedia’s extensive resources and support including a dedicated digital production and online development team, graphic design and post-production department, in-house conferencing and events business as well as a strong sales and marketing culture.

“We would like to recognise Shankar Vishwanath for his hard work and dedication as the owner of the Printer Magazines Group business over the last five years and we look forward to developing some exciting new business opportunities in the near future,” Wells said.

With this acquisition, The Intermedia Group, will now publish over 30 separate magazines and 35 separate digital mastheads in addition to running several face-to-face events including awards, seminars, conferences and exhibitions.
