History of Wolters Kluwer
The origins of Wolters Kluwer date back to 1836, when J.B. Wolters started a bookstore in Groningen. Later on, J.B. Wolters’ publishing house emerged from this. After a few years, in 1858 to be precise, Wolters had a direct competitor next door, namely P. Noordhoff. Both Groningen publishers were mainly active in the educational market.
Samsom publishers were founded in Alphen aan den Rijn in 1882 to improve municipal administration. Samsom’s publishing house realised at some point that there was a need for printed legal texts and legal commentaries, which is how the book publishing company came into being.
In 1889, therefore, the publishing house Kluwer was founded, which acquired the publication Vakstudie for the tax expert. This made Kluwer the market leader in the literature on tax regulations in one fell swoop. W.E.J. Tjeenk Willink made his breakthrough as a legal publisher in 1913 with the publication of the first issue of Nederlandsche Jurisprudentie. During both World War I and World War II the business world had a greater need than ever before for efficiency and with it forms and administrative systems, Samsom met this need.
In 1968, W.E.J. Tjeenk Willink and Kluwer merged and Wolters and Noordhoff merged in the same year to form Wolters-Noordhoff. In 1970, Informatie & Communicatie Unie, the ICU, came into being as a result of a merger between Sijthoff, a publisher of public publications, and Samsom.
From the 1970s Kluwer acquired several other publishing companies and in 1972 the ICU group merged with Wolters-Noordhoff and H.D. Tjeenk Willink, legal publisher for education. To create a recognizable name in the market the name was changed to the Wolters Samsom group in 1983.
Because Elsevier tried to take over Kluwer in 1987, Kluwer accelerated the merger negotiations with Wolters Samsom that had already started. That same year, the merger became a reality and Wolters Kluwer was born.
