Canon Acquires Global Pharmaceutical Media Co.
Los Angeles-based Canon Communications announced today that it has acquired Engel Publishing Partners from Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC. Engel is a niche b-to-b media company that serves the global pharmaceutical market and publishes such titles as Med Ad News and R&D Directions, and Web site PharmaLive.com.
This is Canon’s fifth follow-on acquisition in the last two years. As previously announced, Canon will launch the BIOMEDevice trade show next month, which the company hopes will provide a forum for the converging areas of the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing markets.
