Ingram Opens Lightning Source Facility in Australia

Sep 28, 2010

Ingram Content Group announced plans to establish a Lightning Source print-on-demand book manufacturing division in Australia, effectively expanding the company's presence in the Asia-Pacific market. Lightning Source, Ingram reports, can allow publishers to potentially reduce or remove the need for the warehousing of local inventory, in addition to reducing transportation and stock write-off costs.

Australia's forthcoming Lightning Source facility will be Ingram's fifth networked book manufacturing plant. It will manufacture both paperback and hardcover black-and-white interior books.
