Egon Menardi, Commercial Director at ACCUCOMS, comments on the new deal: “We are happy that we have been able to show our value to Karger Publishers and after years of telesales campaigns, Karger is now taking the next step and joining forces with us – using our extensive network in the region in order to sell its products in Latin America. Karger publishes high-quality content covering all fields of medical science and thus will bring a very interesting portfolio to Latin America. We look forward to working together and are enthusiastic about the possibilities.”

“Following the increasing importance of the Latin American market for Karger Publishers, we are glad to have the opportunity to collaborate with ACCUCOMS in order to further strengthen our business and raise awareness of our portfolio in this region.
