IOS Press announces that after many successful years of collaboration with Van De Bilt Sales and Marketing, ACCUCOMS will be taking over representation services across the whole of Europe, including Turkey, from 1 January 2014. This choice has been favored by the existing collaboration between ACCUCOMS and IOS Press in Italy and Turkey.

We are confident that ACCUCOMS´ professional staff can build further on what Theo van de Bilt has done for us in the past thirteen years.”

We will keep on applying innovative thinking across all sales channels for the benefit of our customers, and look forward to helping IOS Press expand sales across this challenging and diverse territory.”
