The team at Rail Express is excited to announce its acquisition by Australia’s largest independently owned business-to-business, multi-platform publisher, Prime Creative Media.
Prime Creative Media formally acquired Rail Express, and sister publication Australian Bulk Handling Review, from former owner Mohi Media, on July 2, 2018.
Since its inception with a single printed title in 2003, Prime Creative Media publishes business magazines across Australia’s critical industrial sectors including: road transport, manufacturing, logistics, engineering, mining and resources, infrastructure, waste management, and education.
The Rail Express team has joined Prime Creative Media’s Sydney office, which was opened in 2015.
“Australian Bulk Handling Review and Rail Express are highly regarded publications in their industries,” Prime Creative Media Managing Director John Murphy said.
Mr Murphy says he was excited to acquire titles that are clearly aligned with Prime Creative Media’s current portfolio offering multiple platforms of print, digital and experiential touch points, as well as strong links to industry associations.
“They are titles that will not only complement our current offering to the manufacturing, transportation, and logistics sectors, but also reflect Prime Creative Media’s brand promise of giving our clients the best exposure to key decision makers,” he said.
“They come to us with a strong, engaged readership and qualified databases. We look forward to continuing to grow the key relationships within the industries these products serve.”
Mr Murphy said he is equally excited to welcome some very talented people to the company, crediting Mohi Media founder Michael Mohi and his team for doing an incredible job of rebuilding these print and digital products.
“I couldn’t be happier with the new home for these titles,” Mr Mohi said. “Prime Creative Media and Mohi Media share similar values and ways of doing business, with a focus on growing individuals, organisations, and industries.”
