Crain Communications GmbH
Crain Communications GmbH was founded on February 1, 2001. Four months later, the company moved into its new offices at the Technopark complex in Oberpfaffenhofen near Munich, Germany. By the end of 2001, the new 20-strong team, established by publisher Helmut Kluger, was almost complete. The first issue of Automobilwoche was published on January 21, 2002. It quickly became one of the most successful newcomers on the market and the most quoted auto-industry publication. Meanwhile, Automobilwoche has continued to go from strength to strength: In May 2005, it was named Trade Publication of the Year by the German Business-to-Business Publishers' Association (Deutsche Fachpresse).
