David C Cook has sold David C Cook Distribution Canada (DCCDC) to the distributor’s executive director, Greg Tombs, and financial director, Hardy Willms. The sale was effective February 29. DCCDC then announced it has acquired Augsburg Fortress’ Canadian distribution division. The transition will take place this week; DCCDC expects minimal interruption of service.
“We are also welcoming some of the Augsburg Fortress Canada staff to our current Cook Canada staff,” says Tombs, adding the company offers products from Abingdon Press, Abbey Press, Penguin Random House (WaterBrook Multnomah), and Westminster John Knox Press.
