Swets Blackwell Acquires W.H. Everett & Son Subscription Business

Swets Blackwell announced the acquisition of the subscription business of W.H. Everett & Son Ltd., known as "the world's oldest independent bookseller and subscription agent." All subscription activities currently handled from Everett's head office in London will be integrated into Swets Blackwell's system by the end of October. Current Everett customers will be served from one of 23 Swets Blackwell regional offices located around the world.

Since 1793, W.H. Everett & Son has provided uninterrupted service to people who need information. Managing director Colin Harrison commented: "I am sad that a company which has managed to stay independent for over 200 years is finally being taken over. At the same time I am very happy that the subscriptions sale is to Swets—a company where we have many friends, especially in their U.K. company, but also in Holland and overseas."

Eric van Amerongen, CEO of Swets Blackwell, added: "We are extremely pleased that Everett's subscription services will become a part of Swets Blackwell. The addition of their prestigious government, academic, and corporate clients will complement our existing customer base nicely. Swets Blackwell will ensure that all customer queries and concerns about the acquisition are handled carefully."
