Wiley Acquires Assets of FIZ Chemie Berlin

Hoboken, N.J.

Extended and integrated portfolio will support development of new services for chemists

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., announced today that it has acquired the assets of the FIZ Chemie Berlin, a leading provider of online database products for organic and industrial chemists. The acquisition aligns with the company's long-term strategy to support research, learning, and professional practice through high quality content and services. Wiley is expanding its presence in Berlin with the new venture providing roles for more than 30 skilled information professionals.

"This is an outcome that represents the best combination of public investment and private enterprise, given Wiley's deep roots in chemistry publishing and its high-profile German and international chemistry society partnerships," said Christian Köhler-Ma, Leonhardt Rechtsanwälte, Berlin, who managed the sale of the assets.

"The FIZ suite of databases and services are a great addition to Wiley's deep reservoir of chemical databases, journals, books and references. The FIZ products and services will enable Wiley to build a new generation of information products to help boost the productivity of chemists," said Steve Miron, Senior Vice President, Scientific, Technical, Medical and Scholarly, Wiley.

The products include the ChemInform weekly abstracting service and reaction database (CIRX), as well as the abstracting journal Chemisches Zentralblatt, the InfoTherm database of thermophysical properties, and eLearning tools and services.

Dr. Jon Walmsley, Managing Director, Physical Sciences and Engineering, said, "The acquisition will position Wiley's premier Chemistry publishing program and its society partners for future growth. This portfolio, which includes such eminent society journals as Angewandte Chemie (GDCh) and European Journal of Organic Chemistry (ChemPubSocEurope), as well as book and reference brands like Ullmann's Encyclopedia of Industrial Chemistry and Larock's Comprehensive Organic Transformations will provide a powerhouse of brands with which to leverage the capabilities of the new operation. In addition we will make significant investments in the sales and marketing of the products."
