Irish Publisher Enters Book Distribution Arena

Veritas is a Dublin-based book publisher. The company, which is over 120 years in business, has 10 retail stores across the island of Ireland and  is an agency of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference. As well as publishing over fifty books a year in the mind, body and spirit genre, Veritas sells over 400,000 textbooks annually in its popular Grow in Love series for primary schools. The company has a network of 10 retail stores across Ireland

The company sees an opportunity to utilise the expertise and resources it has gathered to enter the supply chain sector.

Veritas has the capacity, IT infrastructure and selling experience and are well positioned to enter the book distribution business.

We have over 8,000 accounts with bookstores, churches and schools. It is this client base that is appealing to publishers. We will appeal to educational, religious and general publishers.

Veritas is currently installing a new ERP solution (Microsoft Navision) to enable the smooth handling of multiple entities and has a warehouse resource with the capacity to take on the ranges of a number of small to mid-sized publishers.

Currently Veritas represents a number of US publishers and sells in both Ireland and the UK. The company now looks to complement this by adding a number of publishers who would benefit from an independent distribution alternative.

With extensive experience in publishing and distribution, Veritas can advise on every aspect of the production and sale of books. Along with distribution, Veritas also has a reputable sales agent and a new trade website, which is due to launch early in 2018.
