Sanoma Media Netherlands announced on October 31, 2013 a rationalization of its print activities. 17 focus brands were identified that are further expanded by expanding the digital offering, e-commerce, through events and through closer collaboration with SBS.

Pijper Media publishes leading titles in the field of sports, lifestyle, gastronomy and tourism. Examples include Wieler Revue, Noorderland, Lekker 500, Nautique, Surfmagazine and Lonely Planet. In addition to the publishing house, Pijper Media also has a full-service rotary printing shop with a national focus. All magazines are produced in-house.

Sanoma previously sold Wieler Revue and the restaurant guide Lekker 500 to Pijper Media.

It is expected that the transition of the titles in question will be fully realized in the autumn of 2014.
