Formed in 2011 from the merger of Eaglemoss Publications and GE Fabbri, the company largely focuses on publishing "partwork" magazines. Presently, it publishes about 150 collections in thirty markets, in thirteen different languages.

Eaglemoss currently holds licensing for a number of "genre" entertainment properties from 20th Century Fox (Alien, Predator), the BBC (Doctor Who), DC Comics, Marvel, Striker Entertainment (Valerian), and Universal Studios (Back to the Future, Battlestar Galactica), among others.

Eaglemoss Collections, a division of the Eaglemoss Publishing Group, is presently owned by Eaglemoss Capital Ltd., a holding company comprised of private investors based in London and Paris.

Eaglemoss was formerly a sister company of Data Base Factory when both were subsidiaries of the Financière Aurénis Group. Data Base Factory was acquired by CCA International Inc. in 2015 and presently performs several marketing-related services for Eaglemoss in the UK (and various non-English-speaking countries), under its new company name.

At present, Eaglemoss markets many of its partwork collections under its "Hero Collector" brand and operates an associated web portal under this trademark.

Ben Robinson is Eaglemoss' project manager for many of the science fiction-related partworks.

Star Trek licensingEdit

In May 2012, the UK division of the company launched the Star Trek: The Official Starships Collection partwork, under licensing from CBS Consumer Products. In Japan, the magazine is published by De Agostini, another partwork publisher, under its own imprint.

A spin-off partwork called the "Star Trek Starships XL Edition", exclusively comprised of some of the larger hero ships from the Collection, premiered in the US in 2017.

The company also publishes the Star Trek: Designing Starships series of hardcover reference books which have principally been compiled from content in the Official Starships Collection magazines.

Eaglemoss began to publish volumes of the Star Trek Graphic Novel Collection in January 2017. This series of hardcover books is composed of previously published Star Trek comic books from a wide variety of publishers.

On 31 January 2018, the company premiered the Star Trek: Discovery The Official Starships Collection partwork.

As of late 2017, a future partwork featuring busts of a number of Star Trek characters is under consideration by the company. It is also considering the production of a large build-your-own USS Enterprise-D partwork, similar to De Agostini's aborted project.
