Schimmel Media is turning into zentrada Europe GmbH
On June 30th 2017, the Schimmel Media Verlag merged its subsidiary zentrada.network GmbH & Co KG with
the company and combined all family-owners in an investment holding company. The company, which roots back to the founding of the magazine Zentralmarkt in 1946, is therefore changing its name to “zentrada Europe GmbH & Co KG”. In the future, the company focuses on extending the Europe-wide trading platforms and, in that context, also opens itself to external investors.


Sourcing always had been the biggest disadvantage in competition with big retail companies and brands.
The zentrada.network allows small resellers to stay independent from single suppliers and to take advantage from an Europe-wide variety of consumer goods.

For our online based and free community of professional buyers we qualify the assortments of leading European based suppliers for easy comparison and secured online order management.
