It is with great pleasure that we announce the addition of Bookwire, a young German company specializing in the marketing of digital content, to the De Marque network.

Bookwire will now gain access to De Marque’s Cantook technology, which is developed and powered by De Marque, in order to complement their current distribution platform. Both partners will benefit from the distribution networks developed by one another; German-language books will travel the globe via De Marque’s distribution network, while books already distributed by De Marque, whether they be Canadian, French or Italian, will find a home on Bookwire’s German and international sales platform, opening up both established and emerging markets.

Marc Boutet, president and CEO of De Marque, notes: “Bookwire is a young and dynamic company, much like De Marque. We are looking forward to this partnership which will not only assist us in further consolidating our position in European markets as a leader in digital books, but will also give the opportunity for clients of our platform to reach new markets. Bookwire and De Marque share the same values: We are companies who empower publishers to strengthen their business networks in the world of digital books, while enjoying the best technology available on the market.

Jens Klingelhoefer, CEO of Bookwire, adds: “We are very happy to join forces with another leading independent company in the field of digital ebook distribution. This cooperation allows both our customers to reach even more markets and develop the growing international business at the right time.


De Marque is a leader in the field of cultural digital content distribution, in particular digital books.
