Thieme Acquires Brazilian Medical Publisher
Rio de Janeiro –Thieme Publicações Ltda, the Brazilian subsidiary of the Thieme Publishing Group, is pleased to announce today the purchase of the Brazilian medical publisher, Livraria e Editora Revinter Ltda.
Revinter, run by Sergio and Laercio Dortas, has more than 40 employees, with offices in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Founded in 1974, the company has more than 1,500 active book titles covering a range of medical specialties, and these complement the existing portfolio at Thieme. Over the last 40 years, Revinter has established a reputation for high-quality publishing in key clinical areas for the health professional.
“I’m delighted that Revinter has found an excellent home in Thieme, another family owned and managed company,” said Sergio Dortas. “We look forward to continuing to grow our business.”

“The newly merged company represents another important step for Thieme as we continue to invest in and expand our international operations,” said Brian Scanlan, President of Thieme Publishers. “We have a high level of respect for the management and staff of Revinter and look forward to working with them.”
Under the terms of the acquisition, Revinter will merge with Thieme Publicações, retaining Sergio and Laercio Dortas as consultants. The current General Manager at Revinter, Renata Barcellos, will take over responsibility for the newly merged company.
