SYBEX-Verlag is officially renamed Apollo Medien

(PresseBox) ( Cologne, )
SYBEX-Verlags- und Vertriebs-GmbH is changing its trading name after thirty years. With effect from 01.01.2011, the company will be officially known as "Apollo Medien GmbH". The business model, based on the production and commercial trade of software and computer books, remains unchanged. All employees also retain their current positions with the publishing company. The reason for the name change is a cooperation with the owner of the SYBEX brand, John Wiley & Sons. Wiley and Apollo will cooperate for the further expansion of the SYBEX brand to consolidate its successful market position. However, both publishers will continue to concentrate on their core competencies: Wiley plans to launch a specialist book programme under the SYBEX brand; and Apollo will strengthen its activities in the software market as well as expand the popular PC handbooks. Despite operating under a new name, the company's software products still retain the SYBEX logo with high brand familiarity for end customers. Apollo publications, however, will be published under the new company name to avoid any confusion with book titles produced by Wiley. In their agreement of the new trading name, Wiley and Apollo are confident that an important course has been set - involving joint cooperation - for the future growth of the SYBEX brand.
