In a major expansion via acquisition, All Things Media Ltd (ATM) has expanded into the electrical contractor, IT and data infrastructure sectors with several highly respected and well established market leading titles joining the company’s existing stable of Essential Install Magazine, CE Pro Europe and Commercial Integrator Europe websites and Essential Install Live! exhibitions.

The three new titles are Electrical Contracting News (ECN), Network Communications News (NCN) and Data Centre News (DCN).

With obvious and compelling synergy between the market sectors these titles represent and the markets ATM already operates in, the acquisition presents a number of benefits for advertisers, readers and industry stakeholders in the represented sectors.

This creative pooling of knowledge resources will also create new ways for manufacturers, distributors and service providers to reach exiting customers and create new ones.

David Kitchener, ATM, managing director, says: “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to make this announcement offering a type of synergy never before seen across all of this expanded title line up. With the increased resources and market access we will be able to offer fresh opportunities for all concerned. We look forward to helping all of our industry sectors reach new and diverse markets helping to expand all the sectors we will now be representing.”
