FRANZIS® Book and Software Publishers belongs to one of the oldest and most successful technical specialist publishers in Germany.
The company was founded in 1920 by Franz’schen Printers, which had existed in the center of Munich since 1828. The company began with magazines that accompanied the development of radio and broadcasting, and first embarked on publishing books in the 30s.
After re-establishing itself as a specialised book and magazine publisher in 1948, FRANZIS made its name as the earliest medium for radio, broadcasting and television with its “Professional Radio Book”, which contained 331 volumes in 1992. FRANZIS was adopted by WEKA Media Group in 1991 and merged with earlier computer magazines like PC Magazine and Market & Technology. Today the publisher is located in Haar near Munich, Germany.
