Effective January 1, Casemate Group will handle sales, marketing and distribution of print and digital books in North America for Eurospan Group and some of its publishing clients.
Ken Rhodes, managing director of Eurospan, said, "With our headquarters offices in London's Clerkenwell and a network of regional agents and sales representatives throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Eurospan offers a tried, tested and cost-effective marketing, sales and distribution solution for publishers. And now, through this arrangement with Casemate for North America, we are able to provide our comprehensive service for clients in all markets worldwide."
David Farnsworth, president, Casemate Group, added, "Eurospan is a long established and well respected company in academic publishing circles both here in the United States and abroad. I am excited to be able to bring our North American market reach to them and to their distribution clients. In this age of increasing consolidation and massive cookie-cutter distribution operations, it's good to have an alternative where companies with solid reputations and successful track records can use their respective skills and strengths to collaborate and grow together."
