Annex Business Media has acquired Turf & Recreation Magazine from Turf & Recreation Publishing Inc. of Delhi in Norfolk County, Ontario. A long-time print client, Turf & Recreation is a national publication serving the Canadian turf and grounds maintenance industry. Its readership includes golf course superintendents, lawn and landscape contractors, sports turf managers and municipal grounds managers.
Turf & Recreation owner and publisher Bart Crandon will work with Annex over the coming year to transition to a new publisher, while long-time editor Mike Jiggens joins Annex as a full-time employee.
“We’ve worked with Bart as a print customer for over 20 years, so when he decided to leave the business, it was a natural fit for us to step in,” explains Annex president & CEO Mike Fredericks. “It’s also a natural fit with some of our other brands. We expect to see some synergies and fresh ideas on the client side where Turf & Rec overlaps other markets.”
Bart and Mike will be based in Annex’s office in Simcoe, Ontario, just 15 minutes east of Delhi.
Annex Business Media is Canada’s largest B2B media company, with over 50 brands, and revenue that spans print, digital, video, email, research and events.
