Mining Media (which also owns Concrete Products) has acquired long-standing title Mine & Quarry Trader (MQT) from Penton Business Media, Inc., effective immediately; terms were not disclosed. The 35-year-old MQT will be combined with Mining Media’s Quarry Equipment Marketplace (QEM) to create a distribution solution for buyers and sellers in the aggregates, mining, quarrying, recycling and related industries. As a result of this merger, Concrete Products, Rock Products and Cement Americas readers who have been receiving QEM will now receive MQT in its place.

Advertisers will be contacted soon by long-time sales representatives for both MQT and QEM, Gina Kelly and Christin Doran, who will make sure that customers are informed and comfortable with the transition. Mining Media is committed to providing the resources to make certain that MQT is the most sought after and highly regarded publication of its type in this market. “We will give the advertisers the quality, the circulation and the value that they deserve,” said CEO Peter Johnson.
