DC Thomson Media extends partnership with Air Business

Air Business has provided DC Thomson with end-to-end subscription management and distribution services for its core brands including The Beano, My Weekly and The People’s Friend for several years.

The positive relationship between the two companies has now led DC Thomson to select Air Business as the overseas distribution partner and continued subscriptions provider for its subsidiary company, This England Publishing Ltd.

This England Publishing produces two leading British heritage titles, This England and Evergreen. The quarterly titles have significant overseas distribution, with subscribers in almost every country of the world, says Air Business.

Securing the optimal overseas solution for a widespread and demanding international customer base was DC Thomson’s main priority. Helping to secure the contract, Air Business says it presented innovative mailing solutions to This England Publishing; providing the highest quality of service whilst meeting the publisher’s strict production schedules.

Gregor Morris, Head of Enterprise Operations at DC Thomson Media, comments: “Following several years of successful partnership with Air Business, it seemed a natural synergy to incorporate the two titles published by our sister company This England Publishing Ltd. into the existing DC Thomson distribution portfolio managed by Air Business. The history of excellent service provided by Air Business gave us great confidence that the transition would be smooth and this has proven to be the case.”

Kerr Nice, Key Account Manager at Air Business, adds: “We are absolutely thrilled to extend our relationship with DC Thomson Media by welcoming This England’s prestigious brace of titles to our client portfolio. Following Air Business being selected as Puzzler Media’s subscriptions partner last year, this announcement confirms us as a truly group-wide partner; showcasing our unique end-to-end service.”
