Our Heritage

In 1920, Akron, Ohio, native Edward S. Babcox ventured into the business-to-business publishing industry with the acquisition of India Rubber Review magazine, and Babcox Media was born.

This single acquisition sparked 100 years of innovation and reinvention as we’ve founded and acquired new media brands and adopted new technologies to remain a strong B2B media leader in the auto care, tire, performance, commercial trucking, dealership, powersports and enthusiast markets.
