NewspaperDirect Expands Service in UK through Menzies

Sep 12, 2003

NewspaperDirect, a technology company specializing in the delivery and local printing of same-day editions of newspapers from around the world, in partnership with Menzies Distribution, will expand its service offering in the UK. The launch will be in London on 22 September 2003, with expansion into Scotland over the next several months. Menzies is a UK wholesaler and distributor of news and associated products handling over 50 million newspapers and magazines every week. This new initiative will be added to Menzies' portfolio of services through Jones Yarrell & Co Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary specializing in direct-to-user product distribution. This agreement and subsequent launch activities are expected to grow sales of "same day print editions" from NewspaperDirect's catalogue of more than 180 newspaper titles. Titles such as Los Angeles Times (USA), Shanghai Daily News (China), Aftenposten (Norway), and Manila Times (Philippines) can now be laser printed locally in the A3 format.
