Woodhead Publishing Limited, based in Cambridge, UK has announced the setting up of a new office in the United States, in Philadelphia, to handle the sales, marketing and distribution of its well known list of books on science and technology.
The office will use the services of Caslon Business Development, Inc., which has been based in Philadelphia for seven years. Woodhead has appointed Ingram Publisher Services, an Ingram Content Group company, as distributor.
Speaking on behalf of the company Martin Woodhead, Managing Director said "Following 10 years of successful partnership with CRC Press the time has come for us to manage our own sales, marketing and distribution operation in the important North American market.
We are delighted to be working with Beatriz and Keith Ashfield and their team at Caslon, and we are looking forward to working closely with leading booksellers, wholesalers and end users. Thanks to CRC we have developed strong brand recognition in North America in our specialist fields of engineering, materials science, textile technology, food science, and energy and environmental technology, and we aim to build on this in the future."
