Help media worldwide evolve through world class technology. That is our pledge - and has been for hundreds of years. We continue to help media reach the skies with technology as a driver.

Our story reveals that from the very beginning our DNA has been about supplying front running technology to help media advance, get their journalism across to people and have a profitable business at the same time.

 

CCI comes out of a long history of publishing. Our mother company The Stibo Foundation, was founded in 1794 as a printing shop - using the best and fittest technology of the day. The company even released a daily local newspaper.

In 1979, The Stibo Foundation bought the company that later got the name CCI Europe. In 1975, a group of American engineers create a computer programme for groundbreaking efficiency in the production of large telephone directories. Since the mid 1980s, CCI has focused solely on the media industry.
