Hamshahri Publishing Development Company

   Hamshahri periodicals are widely released throughout the country in huge numbers. It is why over half the press paper consumption is devoted to Hamshahri Institute. Obviously, an independent publishing center for such a family is of highest importance

Following considerable efforts, the big publishing house of Hamshahri, the greatest in the country, was developed and changed into Hamshahri publishing Development Company. The site of the publishing house was bought in 1996 and construction started in 2004. Construction operations and installation of equipment and machinery were underway till January 2007. The house was first commissioned following installation and operation of three professional printing press machines (commercial). Later, when a more developed machine was installed and operated, all pages of newspaper could be published. Overall, the publishing house has the potential to publish 600,000 copies a day doing all pages of the newspaper. In the near future by adding a commercial sheet print machine, magazine covers would be published as well. The important development will take place when mailing room starts its work to package and mail Hamshahri periodicals directly from the publishing house to the main distributing centers, counties, Tehran distribution lines, news stands and subscribers
