COMAG was founded in 1977 and is jointly owned by Hearst Magazines UK (65%) and Condé Nast Publications (35%). Independent third party clients comprise more than 60% of the revenue.

Company Background

COMAG Group has approximately 23% share of the UK newsstand market and about 30% of third party business available. Our portfolio is the most wide ranging of all distributors covering every type of title in virtually all sectors with partworks and collectables in addition.

COMAG has a particularly strong share of international sales – partly a function of our portfolio and partly as a result of an entrepreneurial and flexible approach in overseas markets.

COMAG can offer the widest choice of routes to market of any UK distributor.
