A Long History of Excellence
Core Publishing Solutions has a global reputation for developing innovative solutions that fulfill our clients’ needs for high-quality products at a competitive price point.
This dedication began nearly 150 years ago, when two brothers opened John B. West, a storefront book publisher and bookstore that was one of the precursors to what eventually became Thomson Reuters. The business owners soon realized that their customers did not have an effective way to get current opinions from Minnesota courts. West responded in 1876 by publishing The Syllabi, a weekly publication that provided attorneys with court opinions at an unprecedented rate.
From that point in time, West focused on providing high-quality printing and trusted legal information to clients throughout the United States. West eventually merged with Thomson in 1996 to form Thomson West.
With an eye focused on its customers, Thomson West developed print-on-demand publishing to quickly provide customers with short-run, high-quality print products. In 2006, Thomson West introduced the first-ever short-run binding machine. Custom-made in Germany, the machine binds hard and softbound books simultaneously and turns products around in record time.
Thomson West subsequently acquired Reuters in 2008 and formed the Thomson Reuters that we know today.
Core Publishing Solutions
In 2013, the Core Publishing Solutions brand was created to market print and warehousing services to publishers.
In 2015, we switched from toner-based digital printing to Ink Jet digital printing with the purchase of an HP Inkjet web roll printer.
In 2016 we produced our first Bible, marking our entry into the Bible production and spiritual printing market. Since that time, we have grown into one of the top faith-based publishers in the United States.
In 2020, we installed an HP T490 4 color inkjet press, expanding our capabilities and allowing us to offer even more solutions to our clients.
