From 1873 until today
Aller A/S was founded in 1873 under the name Carl Allers Etablissement A/S in Copenhagen by Carl Julius Aller and wife Laura. In 1874 they started the publication of Nordisk Mønster Tidende (now femina) and in 1877 the first issue of Illustreret Familie Journal was published.
Aller A/S early began to publish magazines in both Norway and Sweden. Aller Media AB (previously Svenska Aller AB) was founded in 1894 followed by Aller Media AS (previously Norsk Aller AS) in 1897. And in 1992 we founded Aller Media OY in Finland.
