The IMD-EMD-Group grew out of the Italian parent company, founded in 1983, into an organic network of companies.

Over a seven-year period, independently run companies were set up in Portugal, Spain, France, Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Germany.

Working on the principle “think global, act local”, IMD-EMD put into practice the idea of local services for international publishers, for titles and companies including National Geographic Society, The New England Journal of Medicine, Time, Newsweek, The Economist, etc.

In the 1980s and 90s, local invoice and magazine distribution, local subscription fulfilment and customer service, setup of local payment methods and local advertising / marketing strategies set new standards in this area, establishing the group’s excellent standing.

Despite the rapid transformation of the magazine industry with competition from the Internet and financial pressure due to a decrease of advertising - and sales income, IMD-EMD has proved itself as a long-term partner to renowned international publishing houses. The group continually introduces new and innovative ideas onto the market, putting them into successful practice.
