Book publisher makes £400,000 move to new HQ

Troubador's new head office

Troubador Publishing has moved into a new warehousing and office facility near Market Harborough, on the border of Northamptonshire.

The move expands the company’s warehousing and distribution facilities and houses all staff. The firm says the £400,000 investment will enable it to broaden its book distribution operation to other publishers.

Managing Director Jeremy Thompson said: “This marks a significant step up for the company as we have changed the way in which we distribute our titles to the retail trade for the better, with new arrangements that are faster, cheaper and more robust than when previously using a third-party distribution company. By investing heavily in new systems and processes, we can not only offer our authors and retail customers a better service, but we reduce our environmental impact by minimising road miles for our books.”

The company employs 25 staff at its premises.
