Now in Aotearoa…

John Reed Book Distribution, based just north of Sydney in New South Wales, Australia, is very pleased to announce that we are now expanding our sales efforts into New Zealand.  We have kept in contact with the NZ market over the years, and now,  thanks to our shippers, we are able to send titles across the Tasman at realistic and reasonable rates . 

Please see below for our freight information.

By way of background, John's involvement in the book trade has been extensive both in
Australia and New Zealand.  He started in the family company in Wellington too far back to
remember, opened a branch of that company in Australia and went back to live in NZ for a
couple of years before the company was sold to overseas interests.  Inga, John's wife, has had extensive experience in accounting and bookkeeping activities and is a director of the company.

Di Baily, marketing director will be happy to assist with any of your enquiries, ably backed up by her assistant, Rebecca, John’s daughter who has recently joined the family company.

We take pride in the service we offer, and the speed with which we get orders out to customers.
We have a number of very interesting lists, which we are confident will be of interest to the New Zealand book trade, and we're now giving you a brief glimpse of some of our recent titles.

We hope you will support us, and we look forward to doing a lot of business together in the
future to our mutual benefit.
