Magazine Articles

Read some of the main articles from THIIS magazines here. You can also download the magazine from the 'Magazine Download' section or read it online using the page reader system - just click on the front page image that you'll find on the home page.

Remember, if you have any news yourself, just let us know. It's a great way of getting free publicity for your company and you'll be surprised just how effective it can be to build business. For example, Neil Smith, Managing Director of Mackworth Healthcare told us: "We decided to use the THIIS magazine to promote our latest news to industry, regarding the management re-structure and investment towards the business post acquisition. I was delighted at the response and was truly surprised about the amount of interest it has raised with key contacts. Within a few days of the publication been circulated, I had arranged multiple meetings with potential distributors and suppliers."

And Teri Carnell, Sales & Marketing Manager at Silvalea told us: "Having recently launched our new website we have noticed a significant increase in enquires every time an article appears online or in the Magazine with a link to our website."
