Gulf Publishing Company and World Oil 100th Year Anniversary
Gulf Publishing Divests Its Book Group
Earlier this summer, the company closed deals to sell its professional and reference division to Butterworth-Heinemann, and its general trade division to TaylorWilson Publishing, a newly formed publishing company founded by entrepreneur Larry Taylor and John Wilson; Wilson had headed the Gulf Publishing book division for the last two years. Gulf president Rusty Meador said the company was divesting the book group to focus on its industry journals and online information portals. The purchase of the trade group by TaylorWilson includes approximately consumer nonfiction titles and author contracts. Taylor said the acquisition "gives us a solid foundation upon which we can build a national footprint through acquiring similar, proven regional book publishers. Wilson said he hopes to introduce at least 16 to 20 new titles in the next year. Fulfillment will be done through Jamco Distribution of Dallas. Butterworth's purchase includes about active titles as well as the rights to out-of-print books.
