January 15, 2016
Beverly, MA—Quarto Publishing Group USA, the leading global illustrated book publisher, is pleased to announce a new and important partnership with World Pub Wholesale (WPW), a leading wholesaler of book closeouts, remainders and promotional books.  This newly formed company led by Jeff and Mitch Press, will be the exclusive sales force for remainder, overstock, hurts and mixed skid sales for Quarto Publishing Group USA and all of its imprints including Book Sales, the leading promotional publisher and remainder dealer for more than 50 years.  

In addition to selling Quarto titles, the company is focused on dramatically expanding its service as a resource to other publishers for the acquisition of their remainders, hurts, overstock and mixed skids to sell through our Book Sales imprint.

Ken Fund, President and CEO of Quarto Publishing Group USA, explains, “We are pleased to be partnering with Jeff and Mitch Press in their new venture, backed by their years of experience in remainders and overstocks.  This will continue to evolve Quarto’s 50 years of success in this field in addition to our traditional publishing and expand our penetration in this market.”

Jeff Press of WPW agreed, “We have hit the ground running since CIROBE (Chicago International Remainder and Overstock Book Exposition) and plan to grow Quarto’s remainder business, including Book Sales, significantly in 2016. Quarto is a powerhouse in the domestic publishing market and we are thrilled with the opportunity to grow this end of the business.”
