Nosy Crow and HarperCollins are very happy to have come to an agreement on a multi-year deal for Nosy Crow’s distribution in the UK and export. HarperCollins will begin distributing Nosy Crow titles from the beginning of August 2023.
Kate Wilson, Group CEO of Nosy Crow, comments:
“Following the announcement of the proposed closure of GBS, who have been our trusted distribution partners since the very start of Nosy Crow’s journey, we are delighted to have managed to secure such a great distribution solution. While our visit to the centre at Bishopbriggs – full of capable, friendly and committed staff – convinced us of the short-term benefits of the move, we are also excited by the vision of HarperCollins new automated distribution centre in Robroyston from 2025, and by the enthusiasm of so many of the existing distribution centre staff about the move.”
Gordon Scott, Managing Director – HarperCollins Supply Chain, comments:
“We are very proud that Nosy Crow has chosen HarperCollins to take over its distribution from this summer. The HarperCollins distribution team is the best in the industry and more than ready to take on the responsibility of distributing Nosy Crow’s fantastic and acclaimed list, both from our Bishopbriggs site and in two years from our new, state-of-the-art centre in Robroyston.”
Nosy Crow will be communicating directly with all of its UK and export customers about the move in the coming weeks.
