01 Company

Getting your target group to hear your advertising message with maximum efficiency – that is our task. Every day our employees do everything in their power, be it consulting, organisation and success monitoring.

As an independent media agency we spread your message using all the media available today. Our roots, however, are in unaddressed household advertising. Here, we are the market leader in Germany: We manage more than 10 billion items of brochures a year in 23 countries – for big and small companies in many different industries.

02 Teamwork

We are an absolute team player and we believe in the capabilities of our employees. Thanks to our teams' diversity we are able to look at each task from different angles – and always find the best possible solution for you. We believe that mutual respect is the basis of motivation and loyalty.

 "The only true realist is the visionary."

03 Quartier B. Kühlen

Tradition and zeitgeist harmoniously come together at Quartier B. Kühlen, which was built in 2015. The former printing plant site in Mönchengladbach was completely refurbished in 2015 based on cutting-edge architectural standards.

Our staff are very happy here and work together very efficiently. The entire building was designed for short lines of communication. This allows us to respond to your wishes quickly.

"We have a very reliable guide to take us into the digital future: the wishes and needs of our customers." 

04 Company development


1997

 

Foundation by Stefan Hamacher
From the outset, today's majority shareholder and CEO Stefan Hamacher placed the focus of the agency on classic household advertising (brochures and supplements as well as ad placements). From day one, our motto has always been: a true service provider mindset.


2006

 

Ingo Wienand joins the company
Ingo Wienand was fully committed to enhancing our role as a customer-oriented service provider. Over the last 10 years he played a major role in furthering our growth; today he is a managing partner at MEDIA Central and as COO responsible for our operational business.


2010

 

Expansion into Europe
We are now there for our trade customers abroad  – and it's proven popular. Following the positive feedback we received, in 2012 we set up MEDIA Central Polska Sp. z o.o. in Warsaw and in 2013 MEDIA Central CR s.r.o. in Prague. Today we are active in 23 European countries.


2013

 

Introduction of MCmaps
Following an intense development period, we succeeded in introducing the leading web-based geo-information system MCmaps This was followed by other software tools, such as MCquality and MCprofi.


2015

 

Relocation to Quartier B. Kühlen
Finally, everything that belongs together is in one place: Our various Mönchengladbach branches came together in the newly renovated Quartier B. Kühlen. We have  improved the communication between the different departments for the benefit of our customers.


2016

 

Expansion of our business activities
By adding the areas out-of-home, radio and digital media to our media portfolio, we are able to provide even more comprehensive advice. Our cooperation with Germany's largest owner-managed media agency, Mediaplus, helps this process along.

"We have seen solid growth without losing our down-to-earth approach."
