Cygnus Acquires Builder, Architect Trade Magazine

Westport, CT Cygnus Business Media, parent company of Kitchen & Bath Design News, has acquired Design/Build Business magazine, a well-known trade publication serving both builders and architects.

The addition of the monthly magazine, currently based in Glendale, CA, expands and strengthens Cygnus' existing Building & Home Products group, which includes K&BDN and its sister magazines Qualified Remodeler, SolidSurface and Wood Digest.

"Our acquisition strategy has been to obtain properties that will enhance as well as broaden advertiser reach within each of our 14 major markets," said Cygnus president and CEO Paul Mackler.

"Design/Build Business has served the residential and light construction market since 1935 and remains one of the industry's more significant publications. Its acquisition will create a multiple-media platform for advertisers in this niche."
