Maine magazine group acquired by Canadian printing company


Maine Magazine, Maine Home + Design and associated publications were acquired by Advocate Printing, a Nova Scotia-based publishing house.

The purchase will allow the publication and printing of Maine magazine and its affiliates to relocate to Canadian facilities, according to The Advocate.

“The acquisition of these titles in Maine demonstrates our company’s faith in community journalism and regional publications,” said Crystal Murray, president of Advocate Media.

Advocate Printing is headquartered in Pictou, Nova Scotia, but its expansion into Maine will allow it to open offices in Portland, The Advocate reported.

The organization already operates St. Croix Printing and Publishing, which serves the border communities of St. Stephen, New Brunswick, and Calais, Maine.

In 2018, Maine magazine and related publications were acquired by State 23 Media, following the dissolution of Maine Media Collective. The former owner of Maine Media Collective left the company after being charged with sexual assault.
