Notfabriken Music Publishing was founded the 1st of September 2002 when Warner/Chappell’s department for printed music was acquisitioned. Our concentration has therefore, since the beginning, been publications of sheet music and song books. Regarding publications of printed pop music we are one of the largest publishers in Scandinavia, both regarding publications and turnover. Notfabriken has six employees and is 100% owned by NotPoolen AB.
The major part of our business is publications of sheet music and song books. Some of our biggest selling titles are the well known Vispop and Hits series. A significant part of our publications are tutor and educational books e.g. the no 1 sellers Elgitarr, rock & blues and Gitarristen. We publish about twenty new titles every year. Along with our own publications we distribute international titles, mainly from US and UK. We have titles from all the major publishers like Hal Leonard, Music Sales, Alfred, Faber, Kjos, AMA and Carisch.
Our publications are sold through dealers in the music and book trade. Today a significant part is sold through different Internet sites. The major part of our sales are in the Scandinavian market but a growing part is sold on export to US, EU and Australia.
Licensing print right is an area where we are growing and today we administrate print rights for Warner/Chappell and Sony ATV catalogues along with our own rights.
