Annex Business Media is pleased to announce the acquisition of four business-to-business properties from KAP Media Inc., a Thornhill, Ont.- based publisher. The acquisition includes Security Matters, Security Products Canada, Sécurité Québec, and SecurityPages.ca.
Alongside Annex’s existing security related titles — SP&T News and Canadian Security — the acquired titles strengthen Annex’s position as the leading publisher of security-related content in Canada, both in print and online.
Paul Grossinger, founder and president of KAP Media and long-time security sector journalist, has joined Annex in the position of Group Publisher – Security Media.
“I am excited to join one of Canada’s most successful media companies,” says Grossinger. “I look forward to growing Annex’s security media division, and creating new opportunities for members of Canada’s expanding security industry to communicate with one another.”
Annex President, Mike Fredericks, added, “This is a double win for Annex. We’ve strengthened our position in the security market, while adding industry depth to our management team. Paul’s experience and knowledge in this sector will be a great asset in our service to the security sector.”
Annex Business Media is Canada’s largest privately owned business-to-business media company, with 46 B2B brands reaching business communities through print, news websites, enews, events, video, and social media.
