The combined entity will provide distribution and merchandising services to over 16,000 customers throughout the entire Northeast and Mid Atlantic areas of the U.S.
According to the press release:
"The magazine distribution industry has faced unprecedented challenges over the past several years, making it more and more difficult for companies like Hudson and Harrisburg to operate profitably. The combination of these two companies will create significantly enhanced economies of scale, which are essential in order for us to survive, be able to pay our bills, and continue to provide superior service to our customers in this difficult and rapidly changing environment.
We are also pleased to announce that Steven Etter will continue on in his role as President of the Harrisburg News Division, and also become Vice Chairman of Hudson News Distributors' Board of Directors. His life-long expertise in our industry and his excellent relationships with both our publisher suppliers and our retail customers are unparalleled in our industry, and we look forward to working together to help stabilize and improve our business."
