For Southwestern Publishing House (SWPH), 2019 was a breakout year. After years of declining revenues, SWPH has seen an impressive turnaround with sustained annual growth of more than 25 percent a year the last three years—and record revenues and profits in 2019. In order to achieve these results, SWPH focused on evergreen book categories and trending topics, partnered with leading brands to create comprehensive publishing programs, and completed strategic acquisitions, all of which now deliver steady recurring revenues.
SWPH serves customers worldwide through multiple imprints that offer a wide range of book publishing capabilities, categories including cookbooks, children’s books, and guidebooks, as well as business, sales, leadership, inspirational, educational, and history books. Founded in 1855, SWPH expands, enhances, and inspires engagement between their clients—including the world-famous Harvard Business School, San Diego Zoo, Instant Pot, and the Smithsonian— and their core audiences by publishing books that deliver authoritative and compelling content. With more than 1,500 exceptional titles from a variety of prominent authors and institutions, SWPH offers editorial and design excellence along with customized sales and distribution capabilities.
Formerly known as Southwestern Publishing Group, Southwestern Publishing House has a “new” name—borrowing from its original name from 1855—as well as a new website and catalog. To learn more and engage with some of our award-winning books, visit us at swpublishinghouse.com.
