The history of PPP


About PPP

Since our creation, PPP has continuously evolved, developed, and innovated to meet the changing needs of our clients and the market. Founded with a clear vision to provide fast and reliable press distribution, our company has managed to diversify its services and expand its geographical footprint over the years.

From our origins in Brussels, where we ensured the daily distribution of the press in the 19 municipalities, to our expansion throughout Belgium, every step of our journey reflects our commitment to excellence and innovation. Our strategic acquisitions, such as Neopress in France and the distribution networks of HSS and Sanoma in Finland, illustrate our determination to strengthen our leadership position in the distribution sector in Europe.

At the same time, we have always placed great importance on sustainability, as evidenced by our acquisition of Urbeez, a company specializing in carbon-neutral urban distribution. Our initiatives in Finland, where we have expanded our distribution network in several regions, demonstrate our ability to adapt our services to local specifics while maintaining high standards of quality.
