Casemate Group and Boydell & Brewer have reached an agreement for Casemate to handle all sales, distribution, fulfillment, customer service, and other back-of-house functions for B&B’s print books for North and South America. The new arrangement begins on September 1, 2018.

Commenting on the pact, David Farnsworth, CE0 of the Casemate Group (booth 1713), says, “In a world where cookie-cutter solutions and mindless adding of distribution clients is all too prevalent, by doing what we’re doing, we’re showing that independent companies truly collaborating is a powerful and extremely valid alternative to what is becoming an unfortunate industry norm.”

Another aspect of the collaboration with B&B that Farnsworth is looking forward to is adding the University of Rochester Press, one of B&B’s imprints.
