The warehouse will open in June 2011. David "Skip" Prichard, president and c.e.o. of Ingram, said: "The addition of a new manufacturing facility will have a significant impact on publishers, the retail book trade and ultimately consumers.

"At Ingram, we are pleased to expand our leading print and distribution network to the Asia Pacific market, helping more content reach more destinations around the world. We will continue to make investments that fit the future of book distribution, whether traditional, print on demand or digital."

Lightning Source operate two print-on-demand facilities in the United States, one in France and the fourth in Milton Keynes.
