Annex Business Media company acquires assets from Capamara Communications

Annex Business Media, Canada’s largest B2B media company, with 63 brands is buying again with more to be announced according to Scott Jamieson, a Group Publisher. Annex, who just celebrated thier 20th Annivesary has acquired Aquaculture North America, Hatchery International and Crane & Hoist Canada from Capamara Communications of Victoria, B.C. 


“This is an exciting addition for Annex,” says Annex COO Ted Markle. “Crane & Hoist Canada will complement our existing heavy construction and resource media group, and we see the aquaculture business as a sustainable, long-term business to be in, especially given the international reach of these magazines. These are well-run, respected brands, and we look forward to seeing what they can do at Annex.”  



Peter Chettleburgh, Capamara’s editorial director and owner, will work with Annex over the coming year to assist in the transition of the publications, while advertising manager Jeremy Thain joins Annex Business Media. Annex intends to continue working with the existing network of editors and contributors.


Aquaculture North America serves aquaculture industry professionals from Canada through Mexico, focusing on technological developments, product information, company profiles and research findings. 

Hatchery International is the only international magazine focused exclusively on the early rearing (hatchery) side of the aquaculture industry, fisheries enhancement and recirculation technology. 

Crane & Hoist Canada is the Canada’s only national magazine focused exclusively on Canada’s the country’s crane and hoist sectors. 


Chettleburgh sees the sale as an opportunity for the three publications to grow in existing markets and tap into rapidly developing spaces in the international aquaculture sector. “It’s a good fit. And Crane and Hoist magazine will benefit from connections that Annex has in the heavy construction and resource sector.”
