The acquisition includes all print publications, events, digital and social media platforms and staff.
PSP managing director Paul Grant commented: “PSP has built up an excellent reputation over the last 24 years for delivering quality publications, events and digital strategies for its clients. To now be acquired by Scotland’s most respected media business is testament to the hard work that our team has done over the years on behalf of our clients.
“This marks a new and exciting chapter for PSP and its clients as DC Thomson Media is committed to growing the business and continuing to build on the excellent foundations that already exist here at PSP.”
Grant added that staff and management are excited and committed to the next stage of PSP’s journey.
