Business Description

Industry: Publishing » Publishing
Compare:PSO, MHP, WTKWY, SGPRY, IFPJY » details
Courier Corporation was founded in 1824 and was incorporated under the laws of Massachusetts on June 30, 1972. The Company together with its subsidiaries is among America's book manufacturers and specialty publishers. The Company has two business segments: book manufacturing and specialty publishing. Courier's book manufacturing segment produces hard and softcover books, as well as related services involved in managing the process of creating and distributing these products for publishers, religious organizations and other information providers. Courier provides book manufacturing and related services from five facilities in Westford and North Chelmsford, Massachusetts; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Kendallville and Terre Haute, Indiana. The specialty publishing segment consists of Dover Publications, Inc. ('Dover'), Research & Education Association, Inc. ('REA'), and Federal Marketing Corporation, d/b/a Creative Homeowner. Dover publishes over 9,000 titles in more than 30 specialty categories including children's books, literature, art, music, crafts, mathematics, science, religion and architecture. REA publishes test preparation and study guide books for high school, college and graduate students, and professionals. Creative Homeowner is a New Jersey-based publisher of books on home design, decorating, landscaping and gardening, and also sells home plans. The combination of Dover's, REA's, and Creative Homeowner's publishing, sales and distribution skills with Courier's book manufacturing, digital content conversion, and e-commerce skills are providing a comprehensive end-to-end publishing solution for Courier. Dover sells its products through most American bookstore chains, independent booksellers, mass merchandisers, children's stores, craft stores and gift shops, as well as a diverse range of distributors around the world. Dover has also sold its books directly to consumers through its specialty catalogs and over the Internet at www.doverpublications.com. Dover mails its proprietary catalogs to nearly 450,000 consumers and annually sends over 200 million emails to electing customers. Dover also maintains www.DoverDirect.com, which is a business-to-business site for its retailers and distributors. Courier purchases its raw materials, mainly paper, but also plate materials, ink, adhesives, cover stock, casebinding materials and cartons, from numerous suppliers, and is not dependent upon any one source for its requirements. Dover, REA and Creative Homeowner purchase a significant portion of their books from Courier's book manufacturing operations. The Company's operations are subject to federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations relating to, among other things: air emissions; waste generation, handling, management and disposal; wastewater treatment and discharge; and remediation of soil and groundwater contamination.
