(Birmingham, Ala.) – Dec. 1, 2008 – New Hope Publishers announced today that STL Distribution North America will provide fulfillment services for all New Hope titles and products effective December 1. STL’s global operations form the largest Christian distributor of Christian resources in the world.
“As God continues to provide us with opportunities to expand our market, we are looking forward to our new partnership with STL and the potential for growth this relationship offers,” said Andrea Mullins, New Hope director/publisher.
STL is headquartered in Johnson City, Tenn., and operates warehouses there and in Sparks, Nev. Prior to this agreement, New Hope titles were warehoused in Lebanon, Tenn., with LifeWay.
“This has been a long journey of preparation to arrive at this day,” Mullins reflected. “We are grateful for the support we’ve received from our previous fulfillment partners, B&H Publishing Group and LifeWay’s distribution services. They have been great partners to us.”
The agreement with STL Distributors is one of several decisions the publisher recently made to help further its business objectives, Mullins said.
“It is our distinct honor to be the chosen distributor of New Hope Publishers products,” said Darren Henry, vice president of STL Publisher Services group. “As fellow ministries striving to impact our world for his kingdom, we share a common vision and passion for our work, and we are thrilled to do our part to help New Hope succeed in its publishing mission.”
All New Hope inventory is now at STL, and Henry said they are ready to serve retail and wholesale customers’ needs related to New Hope products.
