GBS wins Haynes Publishing distribution contract

Posted on 10 January

GBS (Grantham Book Services), the leading third party distributors for independent publishers, has today announced that they will distribute Haynes Publishing (Haynes) from Monday 3rd February 2014.

In September 2013 Haynes, publisher and retailer of illustrated workshop car, motorcycle and DIY manuals announced its plans to close its UK distribution site in Yeovil and source a third party distributor so it could focus all its efforts on improving and growing its manuals’ content and range.

Jeremy Yates Round, MD UK & Europe, Haynes Publishing said: "The decision to change Haynes Distribution could not be taken lightly. A commitment to continue a top quality service that would adapt to future customer needs was our priority.  GBS met those requirements and gave Haynes the confidence that the highest standards could be maintained.”

Mark Williams, MD, Distribution added: “We are delighted to be working with Haynes Publishing and hugely proud to have been chosen to undertake distribution for such a well renowned global brand.  Haynes will complement the already established client portfolio at GBS”
