Smyrna, DE, 22 December 2009 – This week, Prestwick House will sign an agreement to purchase fellow educational publisher, Teacher’s Pet Publications. As a result of this acquisition, in the coming months, educators will be able to purchase the full line of Teacher’s Pet products directly from Prestwick House catalogues and website.
Like Prestwick House, Teacher’s Pet Publications began as a home business founded by a high school English teacher. Both companies specialize in practical products based in sound educational methods, have spent the last few years adding a technological aspect to their products, and are ultimately dedicated to helping teachers of all levels of English and language arts.
Over the past five years, Prestwick House has worked with other publishers to expand its offerings, and this acquisition will add over 1,600 new titles in both hard copy and PDF format to the PrestwickHouse.com website.
“With the acquisition of Teacher’s Pet, we are working to give teachers even more options to explore when purchasing teaching materials. In the immediate future, our customers will be able to choose from over a thousand new products,” says Prestwick House CEO, Jason Scott. “Down the road, new options like customizing teaching guides to fit customers’ specific needs, online test generators, and unique subscription options will give the thousands of educators visiting our site each year an unprecedented edge when it comes to teaching literature effectively.”
The acquisition of Teachers Pets’ innovative technology will further enhance Prestwick House’s ability to create and produce high-quality, effective teaching materials. With features like “Choose Your Own”-type products, online test and study guide generators, and subscriptions to fill a variety of needs, Prestwick House will be positioned to aid teachers even more effectively than it has over the past 25 years.
“In addition to the wide range of benefits for existing customers, Prestwick House will get a chance to introduce Teacher’s Pet customers to our efficient and friendly customer service staff and some of the best prices on paperbacks and title-specific teachings guides nationwide,” says Prestwick House General Manager, Keith Bergstrom.
