The Foundry Publishing (formerly Nazarene Publishing House) announced as of 1 October they will begin doing business with a new distribution partner. The move will end a five-year relationship with Dexter Solutions, which has leased facilities and equipment from The Foundry Publishing/NPH since 2014.
According to CEO Mark Brown, transitioning to a new distributor and consolidating inventory locations will give The Foundry Publishing more flexibility and free up assets to be used for ministry.
“We have appreciated the excellent service of Dexter Solutions but have determined it is time to transition to a new model, which will provide reduced costs and improved efficiencies,” Brown said.
The change will cause no interruption in quarterly Sunday School curriculum orders. All winter curriculum orders will be shipped in a timely manner from the new distribution center in October for use this December, January, and February.
“Although The Foundry Publishing staff is doing everything possible to ensure a seamless transition, delivery of some seasonal items may be interrupted in the transition,” Brown said.
Customers who typically order Caravan and teen or children’s quizzing materials during October and November should place their orders no later than 14 September to be sure their order is not placed on temporary backorder through the end of the year.
The Foundry Publishing toll-free order number, 800-877-0700, which has been in place for nearly 30 years, will remain the same.
“It is our privilege to partner with our churches and customers in ministry,” Brown said. “We appreciate the overwhelmingly positive responses to the recent changes and improvements and we look forward to serving the Church for many years to come.”
