Paper, Film & Foil CONVERTER, formerly part of Maclean Hunter Publishing is now a part of Intertec Publishing Corp., Overland Park, KS.
On Jan. 31, Intertec completed its acquisition of trade and technical magazines, directories, newsletters and associated businesses of Maclean Hunter's Chicago- and Minneapolis-based publishing operations from Rogers Communications Inc., Toronto, Canada. Involved in the transaction were 15 controlled magazines, two paid-circulation magazines, five newsletters plus a collection of eight ancillary businesses.
"The Maclean Hunter acquisition positions Intertec among the top five largest and most important trade publishing companies in the country," Raymond E. Maloney, president/CEO of Intertec, said. "These publications fit well into the Intertec family, bringing quality editorial to well-established, growing markets. Very similar in editorial style and circulation size, the new properties will integrate well into Intertec's operations."
Founded in 1886, Intertec Publishing Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of K-III Communications Corp., New York, NY. One of the largest trade-magazine operations in the US, Intertec is headquartered in Overland Park, KS, and operates divisional offices in Chicago; Denver; Detroit; Irvine, CA; Minneapolis; New York City; and White Plains, NY. It employs more than 500 people, 300 of whom are located in Overland Park.
