Nashville, Tenn. — Endeavor Business Media LLC has acquired Plastics Machinery Magazine from Peninsula Publishing LLC. Terms were not disclosed.
The entire staff of Peninsula Publishing will stay at Endeavor, and the publication will remain in Akron, Ohio.
PMM is a monthly magazine that covers processing innovation and new machinery. The magazine started publishing in November 2014. It was co-founded by Tony Eagan and J.A. Lewellen, and was employee owned.
Endeavor Business Media is based in Nashville and was founded in late 2017 by former SouthComm Business Media CEO Chris Ferrell to acquire business-to-business trade publications, websites and events. PMM is the company's only plastics brand.
"The PMM team has built a very strong brand that will fit in nicely with our other industrial titles," said CEO Chris Ferrell.
Eagan and Lewellen will continue in their current roles with PMM.
