ERT, the 128-year-old magazine for the electrical retail sector, has been purchased by PM Group Worldwide, part of the Datateam Media group.
PM Group Worldwide signed the deal with previous owner Taylist Media for an undisclosed sum.
ERT editor Sean Hannam will join PM Group Worldwide and continue in the role.
Datateam managing director Parvez Kayani (pictured left) said: “I’m delighted to welcome ERT and Sean. It’s great to have a title with such a strong reputation and heritage as part of our portfolio. We will continue to publish ERT with the same care and attention it has enjoyed at Taylist Media so for the electrical retail industry it is very much business as usual.”
Taylist Media managing director Patrick Taylor (right) said: “I’m delighted that we’ve been able to pass the baton of ERT over to Datateam. It’s such a natural fit there and I know it will continue to be published to the same high standards.
“It gives Taylist the opportunity to concentrate on its core markets of kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and interior design safe in the knowledge that ERT is in good hands.”
