Telegraaf group acquires publisher of door-to-door papers.

The Telegraaf group has reached an agreement with Bongers Groep concerning the take-over of Bongers Beheer B.V., a publisher of thematic door-to-door papers (living, employment, cars and leisure) in the south-east of the Netherlands.

As an independent subsidiary of Uitgeversmaatschappij De Trompetter B.V., Bongers Beheer will continue to operate under the current management and the same name. De Trompetter is a publisher of door-to-door papers in the provinces of  Noord Brabant and Limburg and part of the Telegraaf group. The take-over is aimed at a further reinforcement of the market position of both companies. There will be no change in the portfolio of existing titles as a result of the take-over. The same applies to employment at Bongers Beheer (55 employees) and De Trompetter (110 employees).
