Edwards Brothers, Inc. sets up new Digital Book Center For Na Publishing, Inc.

Monday, November 02, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Ann Arbor, MI - Edwards Brothers announced today that it has signed a three-year contract with NA Publishing, Inc. (formerly known as National Archive Publishing Company) to produce XanEdu CoursePacks as well as custom publications.  The products, formerly produced on-site at NA Publishing, will now be produced at Edwards Brothers' Ann Arbor facility, creating an NA Publishing digital center within the plant.  Edwards Brothers has hired former NA Publishing employees to join a team of EB employees to handle the work.  Equipment will also be transferred to Edwards Brothers as part of the agreement.

Edwards Brothers pioneered setting up digital book centers in customer locations and runs numerous facilities in the United States and the United Kingdom.  But this is the first time a customer-dedicated center will be set up on Edwards Brothers' property, which is just a few miles from NA Publishing.

"It's part of our long-term strategy to print locally, close to customer distribution centers," said John Edwards, President and CEO of Edwards Brothers. "It's a win-win situation.  We get to grow with an existing client and expand our capacity.  And we're able to offer NA Publishing expertise and economies of scale not possible with a small stand-alone operation."

Edwards Brothers digital book centers are part of its Life of Title program. By offering multiple offset and digital print platforms that allow economical printing from one copy to thousands, Edwards Brothers helps customers control manufacturing, inventory, and associated carrying costs by printing more closely to actual demand.  The result is the maximization of a title's revenues and profits from cradle to grave.
