This company's history started more than 40 years ago, on 1st
July 1968. In that year, Verlagsunion was founded as a joint magazine distributor by Bauer Media Group from Hamburg and by Kauka Verlag from Munich. We were among the first companies active in the promising sector called "national distributors" in Germany.
In 1970, Bauer Media Group became Verlagsunion's sole shareholder. This turned our company into a limited partnership which is indicated by adding "KG" to its company name, and provides a high degree of financial safety to our publishing customers to this day.
Special fashion editions of “Neue Mode”, the "Auto-Zeitung" on cars, the "Selbst ist der Mann" DIY magazine, and the "Fix & Foxi" children's magazine were among the first magazines attended to by us but did not remain the only ones. The quality of our service enabled us to win over a continuously rising number of customers. Today, we are providing assistance to over 200 publishers, totalling more than 600 periodicals.
Over the years, we managed, first of all, to expand our distribution offer on a continuous basis, introducing additional and customized services in order to take the step from a mere distributor to a modern full-service publishing provider.
