Texas Book began operations August, 1975, in Greenville, Texas. Originally offering a limited supply of used books to small
colleges and universities, we have grown to be one of the largest wholesale textbook companies in the United States, working with thousands of college
bookstores in all 50 states. In 1982, Texas Book Company answered the call for bookstore management services. With the Company's
innovative leadership and trademark textbook expertise, Texas Book Company's College Bookstore Division has grown to be the leader in customer-focused
campus bookstore management, and operates college bookstores in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico.
As a long-standing member of the academic community, Texas Book Company offers unequalled bookstore management expertise, service
excellence, and financial strength. Unlike all other academic retailers, we guarantee our bookstore partners immediate access
to executive management, and a rapid response from Company decision-makers.
Texas Book Company's Wholesale Division provides universities and colleges a comprehensive used textbook program, which in
turn, earns maximum profits for bookstores. Beginning with a nucleus of Texas bookstores, the company has grown to serve 2,000
stores in 50 states.
Texas Book Company's corporate office and distribution center remains in Greenville and is one the city's largest employers.
In September 2003, Texas Book Company moved to a new 60,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters and distribution center in the
Technology Airpark. The new facility houses 18,000 square feet of office space and a 42,000 square foot warehouse and distribution
center with over 250,000 titles in stock. State-of-the-art material handling and distribution systems can process over 5,000
shipments daily to customers around the country.
