Middlesbrough-based Resolution Media and Publishing has outlined plans to create jobs and new print titles.
The company, which is behind Tees Business and Tees Life Magazines, is owned by former Middlesbrough FC colleagues, Dave Allan and Martin Walker.
“While running our own businesses we started collaborating on Tees Business almost four years ago now,” explained Allan, who also owns DNA PR and Publicity.
“Despite people telling us we were making a mistake in launching a printed magazine ‘in this day and age’, we felt confident there was a gap in the market and a demand for certain types of publications – some people still like to read it in the hand.
“Since launching it has more than doubled in size and we’ve since launched a new lifestyle magazine which is heading in the same direction.”
