Company: The Book Depository
Crawford started up with a mission – to make all books available to all. Three years later, the company is one of the UK’s 10 largest booksellers, has a turnover of £24m and can source and dispatch 1.7 million titles within 48 hours from its Gloucester distribution centre. A site allowing customers to self-publish books for £4.99 and a comprehensive book database are coming soon.
