Savas Beatie to Sell Casemate Titles
Savas Beatie is pleased to announce that it has finalized an agreement with Casemate Publishers and Book Distributors LLC to distribute its titles into non-book trade accounts within the United States. The companies have a longstanding business relationship and are well-suited to working together.
Savas Beatie, a leader in the independent military and general history book publishing industry, has produced many award-winning titles and national book club selections. One of the company’s strong suits has been its ability to open and maintain a vibrant revenue stream outside the general book trade. In addition to bulk specialty sales, the company has been especially successful establishing relationships with state and national park sites, gift shops, museum stores, and other related outlets.
Casemate Publishers is a leading book publisher and a dominant independent book distributor for dozens of publishing lines, including Savas Beatie. While Casemate will continue handling general book trade accounts, Savas Beatie will now place titles published by Casemate and some of its distributed lines into specialty and non-book club accounts throughout the country.
“This arrangement is a natural outgrowth of our longstanding relationship,” explains Managing Director Theodore Savas. “Each of us is focusing on our strengths. The ability for us to broaden our selection with an entirely new line of titles from such a quality publisher is a very exciting development.”
Casemate’s President David Farnsworth is also looking forward to the partnership. “We have been successfully distributing Savas Beatie titles into the book trade since 2004, and now they will handle ours in similar fashion outside the trade. It is a win-win for everyone, and we look forward to strengthening our position in new markets with our broad line of military and general history titles,” says Farnsworth.
