What was once a local publishing house and small print shop has evolved into an enterprise that is now engaged in the pan-European education market. Our portfolio is comprehensive and has long since extended far beyond the business of textbook publication. The companies within the Klett Group offer a broad selection of learning and teaching tools, educational services for people of any age, paired with science and cultural media as well as distribution services.

The Group has achieved its huge successes thanks to its ability to quickly find its path in a rapidly growing market and to satisfy the evolving expectations of its costumers with innovative products that are always a perfect fit. Consequently, the Klett Group’s organisational structure is strictly decentralised. All of the various brands are independently managed and developed. To achieve this, the management and staff of the individual companies retain a maximum level of flexibility. Thanks to these lean, decentralised structures, every single enterprise can respond quickly and individually to changes in the markets.
Comprising a total of 58 companies, the Klett Group is one of the leading education-dedicated enterprises in Europe. It is represented in 14 countries and at 37 locations. The individual business units of the Klett Group are divided into the following key categories: educational publications, adult and continued education, cultural publications, professional information as well as sales and distribution. All business units are enjoying consistently positive developments.
In addition to textbooks, learning aids and dictionaries, as well as CDs, CD-ROMs and audio files, Klett publishes numerous specialist books and journals, culture magazines, as well as children’s books, fantasy novels and classic literature. The publishing houses of the Group also have a good reputation for their customer oriented solutions especially when it comes to new media, such as the Internet and software applications.
