In 20 years, SCB has grown from distributing one book into a multi-million dollar business offering 4,000 titles from 160 publishers.
By astutely managing growth and choosing a compelling variety of publishers they enjoy working with, SCB has developed a solid industry reputation for great service, integrity, and sustained success.
SCB is family-built and privately-owned, and they’ve invested their reputations in the quality of services they offer the publishing industry. They prize their independence from political affiliations, governing boards, and bureaucracy.
Further, the SCB offices are located in the SCB warehouses so they have a constant overview of operations.
SCB places the highest value on an equitable publisher-distributor partnership, and they take pride in their responsiveness to all their publishers. At SCB, there’s no “voice jail” and no bureaucracy because of their interactive management system.
SCB carefully chooses their publishers to complement the SCB list and to maximize each publisher’s strengths. Other distributors increase their lists by continuously adding small presses in a process of unchecked growth. Of course, those presses soon find they’re unable to develop a true working relationship with the distributor.
SCB takes booths at the world’s major book sales shows and rights markets: Frankfurt Book Fair, London Book Fair, and Book Expo America, as well as at the library and other shows, and is represented at all regional book fairs in North America.
Location, Location, Location!
SCB’s home base of Los Angeles is the #1 book market in America. An always-surprising fact is that Southern California book sales are consistently ahead of those in NYC and San Francisco. As the only major book distributor in the area, SCB has important professional and personal connections in this dynamic region.
SCB’s 20,000 square-foot warehouses and offices are in Gardena, near downtown L.A., the 110 Freeway, and minutes from LAX and Long Beach—the largest ports of entry for books printed throughout the world.
