Phaidon signs distribution deal with MDL

Phaidon has signed a deal with Macmillan Distribution (MDL) for its UK and international markets, moving to the firm from GBS.

The arts publisher is informing its customers of the new arrangements this month, with the new distribution deal commencing on 2nd March.

Koen Mastenbroek, international sales and operation manager at Phaidon, said: "We look forward to our distribution partnership with MDL and believe together we can grow Phaidon’s UK and international business. MDL’s culture and its focus on customer service and ongoing investments in the supply chain make it our trusted partner for the future."

Matthew Hogg, MDL’s director of publisher and customer services, added: "We are delighted to be working with the Phaidon team. This is a list that we have admired for many years and a welcome addition to our third-party distribution operation. 

"From our early conversations it was clear that Macmillan and Phaidon share very similar values in how we operate and focus effort on the needs of our customers, which makes this both a good fit and a great opportunity to develop our businesses together."
