About Müller Medien
At the age of 65, Hans Müller founded what is now known as Telefonbuch Verlag Hans Müller from his living room – laying the foundation for the Müller Medien corporate family. His pioneering spirit can still be felt today in the fourth generation and among all our colleagues.
"In our corporate family, we live the tradition of our great-grandfather Hans Müller, who laid the foundation for our corporate family at the age of 65: recognizing opportunities that arise, for example, as a result of technical, regulatory or social changes and addressing the resulting new issues with entrepreneurial initiatives.
The digital transformation offers particularly exciting opportunities to reconsider the needs of our users and customers. The changing ground rules offer room for existing and new products as well as the chance to expand into new business models, also with partners. However, digital change is not an end in itself for us: Only if it can solve problems or bring about improvements over previous options can it lead to an exciting business model.
Communication within and across the five business divisions is the DNA of our corporate family. This and our cooperation with a diverse range of partners in companies in the digital and media industry worldwide are the driving force behind our business success and the joy we experience in our work."
At the age of 65, Hans Müller founded what is now known as Telefonbuch Verlag Hans Müller from his living room in Nuremberg, thus laying the foundation for the Müller Medien corporate family of today.
Our corporate family is aware of its responsibility with regard to the environmentally friendly use of resources. We advocate the sustainable and responsible use of natural resources and the maintenance of social and ecological standards along the wood, pulp, paper, printing, and recycling chain.
