JoiningTheDotsBarbour Publishing has appointed Joining The Dots Distribution (JTD)—formerly Integrity Media Distribution—as the company’s primary trade distributor for product in the U.K., starting in August.

“Joining The Dots Distribution is well-connected with the publishers they represent and have a great business reputation,” said Barbour’s Vice President of Sales Bill Westfall. “They go beyond the call-in customer service with their four full-time sales representatives who make account calls every eight weeks.

“I think the move of distribution and sales representation to JTD provides Barbour with exciting new avenues while continuing to grow our existing relationships with Christian retailers and others within the U.K.,” Westfall added.

JTD represents and distributes resources from a wide range of U.K. and U.S. publishers and labels. The distributor is pleased about the new partnership and confident that it will make Barbour’s products readily available to the masses.

“We are delighted to have this opportunity to represent this highly respected catalog in the U.K.,” said Jonathan Bugden, CEO of JTD. “It's a significant addition to our wide range of publishers, and we are excited to present these products to our retail store partners.”
