New Publisher for the MaintWorld Magazine


The Finnish Maintenance Society Promaint ry, will outsource the publishing responsibility of the MaintWorld magazine to Omnipress Oy, one of the major publishing corporations in Finland.

MaintWorld is one of the most professional magazines in Europe specializing in maintenance and physical asset management issues. It is distributed all over the maintenance related community globally.

It has also been the mouthpiece for the organization of the European Federation of the National Maintenance Societies (EFNMS) and its National Maintenance Society (NMS) members, located in 22 European countries. The target is that each member of the National Maintenance Societies should receive his own copy of the magazine and hereby get the latest news about maintenance and asset management.

Omnipress is part of Suomen Lehtiyhtymä Oy, which is one of the major Finnish publishing corporations. Omnipress is responsible for 17 regularly published customer and stakeholder magazines. The professional media house expertise and resources of Omnipress will ensure that both MaintWorld magazine and its web services will meet the challenges of the future.

Promaint will still be the owner of the trademark of MaintWorld and all the old cooperation activities, which have been valid between MaintWorld and EFNMS, as well as the National Maintenance Societies, will continue as previously. Omnipress will, as in the past, publish four yearly issues of the MaintWorld magazines.

The staff of MaintWorld will continue as old employees with Omnipress. Editor-in-Chief will be Martti Hakonen, who has been successfully, for several years, also the responsible editor-in-chief for the Finnish Maintenance Magazine Promaint.

During the last years MaintWorld has been growing steadily and now is a good time to take the next development step. To succeed, a magazine like MaintWorld, needs a professional editorial staff, professional copywriters, art directors, marketing staff and financial stability. I strongly believe that MaintWorld magazine will be in good professional hands with Omnipress.

In addition, being a Pan-European professional maintenance magazine, MaintWorld will continue to develop strongly gaining new numbers of writers, readers and subscribers among the European National Maintenance Society members, but our challenge is also to tempt all the maintenance professionals globally to become family members of MaintWorld.
