Johnston Press

Johnston Press Plc can trace its roots to 1767 when the Johnston family started a printing business. The company was later named F Johnston & Co Ltd in 1882, during a period that the company acquired a number of newspapers, including the Falkirk Herald. Johnston Press went public on the London Stock Exchange in 1988 and, two years later, acquired two rival companies, namely Cedric Chivers and Dunn & Wilson. The company has continued to grow its portfolio of newspapers through acquisitions until reaching 200 publications. Johnston Press Plc went into administration in 2018 and later sold its assets to JPIMedia Ltd.

Primarily, Johnston Press’ business activities entailed running local newspapers across the United Kingdom. The new company, JPIMedia, just like Johnston Press, uses the extensive network of newspapers to offer an advertising platform to businesses and individuals. JPIMedia Ltd moved the headquarters of Johnston Press Plc from Edinburgh, Scotland to London, the United Kingdom.
