Hachette España

Hachette España’s origins date back to the year 1959 when Germán Sánchez Ruipérez founded Ediciones Anaya in Salamanca, specializing in school textbooks. Over the years, the publishing house expanded its activities through the acquisition and startup of various companies such as Cátedra and Alianza, focused on literature and the humanities, and Pirámide and Tecnos, targeting university-level and professional readers. This growth continued with the launch of additional businesses and imprints across the various Spanish regions, in keeping with the Group’s commitment to support the country’s multilingual landscape. The Group, which joined Hachette Livre in 2004, now includes some twenty imprints and has pursued its international expansion in Latin America, especially in Mexico. With some 2,600 new titles published in 2017, Hachette España is a leader in the textbook market and remains a major player in the general fiction and nonfiction category.
