Important Announcement

After a year of juggling our UK distribution inhouse, we are pleased to announce that we have now found a far more suitable solution and will be moving to Ingram Services UK from 1 January 2024.

Berghahn Books is already distributed by Ingram Academic Services in North America and we are a long-time customer of Lightning Source for print-on-demand and Coresource for our digital asset management. It therefore makes good sense to integrate further and thereby offer a more seamless global distribution solution for the company as a whole.

We have enjoyed the independence and oversight that running our own distribution has offered – but it is not sustainable. With this new partnership we are confident that customers will benefit from the scale and efficiencies that a long-running professional distributor, such as Ingram, can provide.

We thank all of our customers so very much for your ongoing support, patience, and faith in us during this extremely challenging year.

More exact details on the transition will be forthcoming as we work with Ingram in the coming months to ensure a smooth transfer of accounts and order operations.
