Westchester Publishing Services has been a provider of the highest quality editorial and composition services (also known as typesetting) to our clients for 50 years. Founded in 1969, and located in Danbury, Connecticut, Westchester fulfils editorial and production requirements for more than 150 client publishers, on over 4,000 books and nearly 100 journal volumes each year, representing annual production of more than 1 million pages of client content.
In 2008, during a time when virtually every US pre-press production company of medium or large size was being purchased by India-based firms, Westchester took the opposite approach, acquiring 100% ownership of the India-based composition firm, Antares Publishing Services (APS), after seven successful years of collaboration.
The APS staff of more than 300 has been providing production services exclusively for Westchester clients for more than a decade, from our offices located in Chennai and New Delhi. In another forward-thinking move, Westchester Publishing Services established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 2014, becoming a 100% employee-owned company in the US.
More recently, in 2017, after years of careful consideration, Westchester Educational/K-12 Publishing Services began operations in Dayton, Ohio, providing educational publishers with a range of services from content creation for student books, teacher guides and ancillaries, to original illustrations, photo research, page design and layout, through to post-development editorial and pre-press production.
In 2018, Westchester Publishing Services further expanded our range of offerings into the UK and European publishing market with the establishment of our UK office, located in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire.
