Bonnier Books UK is owned by Bonnier Books, the business area of Bonnier AB that comprises all of the company’s book publishing houses in Europe (Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, England, France and Poland) and in the United States and Australia.
The publishing houses have successfully driven their business for over 175 years, from Albert Bonniers Förlag’s first published work “Proof that Napoleon never existed” in 1837. Since then, the business has developed and grown in Sweden and internationally, and within a number of segments, both in publishing and in retail.
Starting in 1804 as a small bookstore and publishing firm, Bonnier AB is now an international media company with operations in 14 countries worldwide.
Bonnier AB is wholly owned by the Bonnier family, which has been running the company for seven generations. As a family company, Bonnier is dedicated to sustainable growth and strengthening the company for future generations. The family is committed to ethics, integrity and loyalty and firmly devoted towards using its roots as a compass for its future.
Our parent company, Bonnier AB, is an international media group with operations in 14 countries and eight business areas. Here is how the company is organised.
