The New York Times (NYT), one of the world’s best-known and most prestigious newspapers, has chosen Roularta Printing  to print its monthly lifestyle supplement, T Magazine - International Edition. Roularta Media Group’s Roeselare-based printing works is the biggest offset printer in Belgium. 

Roularta Printing has the wind in its sails: a few months after the printing works teamed up with The Financial Times (see press release dated 23/10/2023), The New York Times International Edition also moved the printing of its monthly lifestyle supplement, T Magazine, to Roularta.  

T Magazine  is distributed with The New York Times International Edition to subscribers, newsstands and travel points across all markets outside of North America (UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia).  The first copies rolled off the Roularta press at the beginning of February 2024.

Roularta Printing has built up a solid reputation of reliability, benefits from its central location in Western Europe and continues to invest in innovation and sustainability. In 2023 for example, the company invested 4.5 million euros in energy-efficient drying ovens, reducing its CO2 emissions by 14%.

Helen Konstantopoulos, VP International Circulation & Development (NYT):
“We chose Roularta Printing to print T Magazine because of their high quality and significant expertise.  Their location at the heart of Europe also allows us to achieve excellent distribution efficiency.  We look forward to a successful commercial relationship.”

Steven Renders, Director of Roularta Printing:
“We are honoured that NYT has chosen Roularta to print T Magazine Intl. This is an important milestone for us: we have never had the opportunity to print such a significant quantity for the British market before.”
