As part of their third-party publisher expansion plans, Hachette UK Distribution is pleased to announce Pinnacle Booksales will be joining their distribution facility from 29th January 2024. To deliver this new partnership, Pinnacle Booksales has formed a new company, Pinnacle Book Distribution Ltd, to provide distribution for Independent Publishers.
Pinnacle Booksales is the latest third-party publisher to join Hachette UK Distribution, following in the footsteps of British Library Publishing in June 2023, Flame Tree Publishing in April 2023, Elsevier in 2022, and Profile Books in 2021. Home to the most advanced warehousing technology in UK publishing, Hachette UK Distribution has been a market leader in service levels since 2020. The ongoing expansion plan represents the largest single investment in the history of the UK book distribution market.
Pinnacle Booksales currently provide sales and support services for a number of UK and International Publishers including Union Square & Co; LID Business Media; Hardens Restaurant Guides; and Monsoon Books.
Russell Evans, Business Development Director says: ‘I’m so proud that we continue to lead the way when it comes to book distribution in the UK. This exciting partnership with Pinnacle Books enables us to deliver our distribution expertise to smaller, independent publishers, ensuring that Hachette UK Distribution serves the widest range of publishers and continues to support growth in our industry. David and his team at Pinnacle Books are the perfect partners for this next phase in our expansion plans.’
David Segrue, Managing Director, Pinnacle Book Sales, said: ‘I have worked with a wide range of UK distributors over the years, when I decided to build the distribution side of my business, I believed it was only worth doing if I could provide the best in class. I am very excited to be launching Pinnacle Book Distribution partnering with Hachette UK Distribution, my intention is to give independent publishers the opportunity to have the same distribution service as the biggest publishers. Hachette UK Distribution excel in what they do, and I look forward to working in partnership with them and the publishers I work with.’
