Harrisons administrators sell Scala Publishers in pre-pack

Guide book and exhibition catalogue publisher is sold to Channon Education

HARRISONS ADMINISTRATORS have arranged pre-pack sale of publishing company Scala.

Tony Murphy (pictured) and Paul Boyle, both from Harrisons Business Recovery,  were appointed joint-administrators to Scala Publishers which has offices in London and New York.

The company was sold to Channon Education, saving all eight employees from redundancy.

Scala was established 40 years ago and worked closely with the National Gallery and other museums and art gallerys to produce “reasonably” priced guide books and exhibition catalogues. However, the last few years have seen sales fall due to tough economic conditions.

Murphy said: “I am delighted with the sale of Scala Publishers through the administration process and pleased to advise that key personnel and management at the company will remain unchanged, ensuring a smooth transition.

“Channon Education has committed significant funds towards the future development of the company. This is good news for Scala Publishers as there are plans afoot to expand and build upon its already solid foundations within the museum, gallery and heritage site market.”
