ABOUT PARTNERS PUBLISHERS GROUP
PPG- a distributor – was established in 1997 as a sister company to Partners Book Distributing (PBD) – a wholesaler – to accommodate PBD’s client publishers who publish national titles that would benefit from the wider marketplace that a distributor can provide. Over the past 11 years, PPG has consistently tried to provide publishers with relatively low cost flat rate access to the bookselling marketplace.
