Having previously had five years of experience in producing Automobil magazine for the Retail Motor Industry organisation (RMI), Johannesburg-based Future Group has successfully pitched to re-publish the magazine from the June edition.
With a membership of 7 500, the RMI provides an effective collective voice for South Africa’s motor industry – and Automobil is perceived to be among the most influential of the country’s automotive publications.
“Automobil was the Future Group’s first automotive title and since then we have developed a solid footing in the automotive sector. From trucking to consumer awards, custom publishing with major groups through to fleet management – our insights within the sector have grown in leaps and bounds,” says Richard Lendrum, Managing Director of Future Group.
Based in Johannesburg, the company has had the privilege of working with a number of leading brands, associations and organisations in its 17 years of existence.
“Today, we’re delighted to announce that after a brief time outside our camp – RMI’s Automobil is back and part of our publishing line-up,” concludes Lendrum.
Automobil is a monthly publication distributed to RMI members as well as a number of non-members or associated organisations and businesses including those involved in the transport and logistics industries. Under the Future Group’s auspices the magazine will again be edited by Wynter Murdoch.
