In November 1903, in the east-central Dutch city of Apeldoorn, Johan Frederik Wegener started publishing a news and advertising paper, which would later become Apeldoornse Courant. More than a century later, that small local publishing house has grown into today’s leading group specializing in newspapers and multimedia, Koninklijke (Royal) Wegener NV, with its headquarters located in Apeldoorn. Wegener is the largest publisher of regional daily newspapers and free door-to-door papers in the Netherlands.
Since October 2007, Mecom Group plc, based in London, has been the holder of a majority interest in Wegener shares. read more
