About Us

Established in 1989, KHL Group is the leading supplier of international construction information in the world. It has achieved rapid growth through market focus and an intense knowledge of the world market. Editorial quality and independence from commercial pressures is why KHL's magazines enjoy a loyal readership which is the foundation of long-term success for a publishing company.

KHL Group is a diversified media company that delivers information in whatever format the market demands. Using its strong market-leading magazine brands, KHL has expanded into digital magazines, newsletters, apps, directories, new media technologies, exhibitions, conferences, awards and contract publishing.
