LSC and Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Enter a Supply-Chain-Services Agreement
CHICAGO - February 8, 2018 - LSC Communications and Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company announced jointly that they have agreed to enter a supply-chain-services agreement. Beginning in March 2018, LSC will supply a range of services for Wm. B. Eerdmans, including fulfillment and distribution, digital content management on LSC’s Harvest platform, and digital print technologies such as print-on-demand and automatic inventory replenishment.
Eerdmans’ VP of Sales and Marketing, Tracy Danz, said, “After several months of study, we concluded that partnering with LSC would be the most effective way to provide the fast and reliable fulfillment service that our customers expect today. LSC has a strong reputation among publishers, and we are confident that our customers will be pleased.”
According to Wm. B. Eerdmans’ President and Publisher, Anita Eerdmans, this new distribution partnership is one of a number of steps the highly regarded publisher is taking to position itself for success in its second century. “In order to safeguard and enhance our ability to publish the excellent books that our readers and authors expect and need, we have undertaken a comprehensive assessment and adjustment of our business operations.” The aim, she said, is to build up core strengths (editing, marketing, and selling) and find the best external solutions for ancillary functions (manufacturing, warehousing, fulfillment, and retail sales).
“LSC continues to focus on providing expanded supply chain services to publishers, allowing our clients to dedicate more resources to creating great content for their customers, while LSC facilitates delivering that content,” said Dave McCree, president of the Book Division at LSC Communications. “We look forward to enabling Wm. B. Eerdmans to increase efficiencies across their distribution channels while providing exceptional service to their customers.”
