Worldcolor, Macmillan Agree on Pact Extension

MONTREAL—Worldcolor has signed a multi-year agreement with Macmillan’s New York-based U.S. operations. The deal, which did not specify a dollar value, involves the printing of approximately 800 million major trade bestsellers, textbooks and mass market (paperback) books, based on current projections. Also included in the agreement are related warehousing and distribution services.

The agreement renews and expands a long-running service relationship with the publisher, whose signature imprints include many of the best known names in book publishing such as St. Martin’s Press, Farrar Straus & Giroux, Henry Holt, Tor, Forge, Bedford/St. Martin’s, and W.H. Freeman and Worth Publishers. The agreement also adds new value-added services to the scope of the relationship.
