Hachette Livre and Lightning Source Partner on French POD Operation
“We have had a terrific working relationship with Hachette, both in the U.S. and U.K. for many years, and are extremely delighted to strengthen both of our businesses through this joint venture in Hachette’s home market,” Ingram says.
“We are very excited about this innovative partnership with Hachette," adds David "Skip" Prichard, president and CEO of Ingram Content Group. "It allows us to build out our globally distributed print capabilities in one of the largest book markets in Europe, and to bring the huge financial and cultural benefits that POD offers to the French book market. POD is about so much more than just printing books. The on-demand model is revolutionizing the very manner in which books are being published and distributed.”
