Macmillan Publishers will handle sales and distribution in the U.S. of Pan Macmillan UK adult and children's trade imprints. The launch titles for the new arrangement will be published in July 2023. The U.K. imprints are currently distributed in the U.S. by Trafalgar Square Publishing, part of IPG. Macmillan is a distributor for a dozen publishers, including Bloomsbury USA, the College Board, Drawn and Quarterly, Graywolf Press, Guinness World Records, and Page Street Publishing.
Jonathan Atkins, international director for Pan Macmillan, said, "Pan Macmillan already has a successful distribution partnership with Macmillan for the Kingfisher and Collector's Library imprints and looks forward to expanding this with further titles, where rights are available. We love working with our fantastic colleagues at sister company Macmillan and this new and closer collaboration with the U.S. team will give our authors and illustrators much better access to the largest trade market in the world."
Liz Tzetzo, v-p, publisher services and distribution for Macmillan, added, "We are thrilled to take on additional distribution for Pan Macmillan UK's award-winning books. We look forward to expanding their sales in the U.S. and working with the entire exceptional U.K. team."
Pan Macmillan continues to work with Publishers Group Canada, part of the Raincoast group, for sales and distribution in Canada.
