Inpress has appointed BookSource as its distribution partner.
Inpress, the Newcastle-based sales and marketing agency specialises in selling books produced by independent publishers and currently represents over 60 literary publishers and imprints.
BookSource is one of Britain’s leading independent book distributors, supplying printed books, maps and music to the retail trade and general public throughout the UK and the rest of the world. The addition of the Inpress portfolio to the BookSource list of clients is another significant acquisition for the Publishing Scotland subsidiary, which works with over 120 independent publishers.
The partnership marks a concerted effort by Inpress to source a trusted distributor to provide a comprehensive service including warehouse and stock management, and order processing and fulfilment.
Sophie O’Neill, Managing Director at Inpress said: “BookSource is a great distributor with a team who really care about promoting and supporting the business of independent publishing, this makes them the perfect match for Inpress. Everyone here, including our member publishers, is really looking forward to this next chapter in our development. We can’t wait to start working with the team at BookSource and growing our business with their partnership and support.”
Commenting on the partnership, BookSource CEO Davinder Bedi said: “I am delighted to welcome the Inpress team and their publishers to BookSource. This partnership underlines our commitment to providing a trusted and innovative distribution service to our clients, and further strengthens our position as the go-to distributor for independent publishers. Inpress publishers have an impressive line-up of books with exciting new titles scheduled for the remainder of 2023. We can’t wait to get started and I look forward to us working together.”
Inpress titles will be available to order at BookSource with immediate effect.
