Media Wales Ltd. is a publishing company based in Cardiff, Wales. As of 2009 it was owned by Reach plc (formerly known as the Trinity Mirror Group). It was previously known as the Western Mail & Echo Ltd.


The Western Mail was founded in 1869 by the 3rd Marquess of Bute as a Conservative newspaper. In 1893, the original building in St. Mary Street was destroyed by fire and a new building was opened also in St Mary Street two years later.

In 1928 the Western Mail Ltd amalgamated with David Duncan & Sons, who published the South Wales Daily News and the South Wales Echo, which was established in 1884. The merged company became Western Mail and Echo Ltd. and because of the merger Evening Express and South Wales Daily News closed. In 1960, the newspapers left St Mary Street and moved to Thomson House, Cardiff.

On 1 October 2007 Western Mail and Echo Ltd changed its name to Media Wales, and in 2008 Media Wales moved from Thomson House in Havelock Street to a newly built office block, named Six Park Street, next to the old building.

The printing plant relocated to Portmanmoor Road, where it printed the Western Mail, South Wales Echo, South Wales Evening Post and the Llanelli Star. It also printed other independently owned titles, including the Pembrokeshire Herald. In November 2016, the parent company Trinity Mirror (Reach plc), announced its plans to close the printing plant and transfer all printing to either its printing plants in Birmingham or Watford.
