Macmillan Publishers Limited today announced plans to make a major investment in a new central-London campus for its UK publishing operations. Macmillan Education, currently based in Oxford, and Palgrave Macmillan, based in Basingstoke, will join Nature Publishing Group and Pan Macmillan in a new campus in the King’s Cross area.
The planned move to new premises will not happen before 2014, and negotiations are progressing with a number of property developers in the area.
Annette Thomas, CEO of Macmillan, said: “Bringing our publishing divisions together will make it far easier for us to share ideas and explore new business opportunities. We have already seen the benefits of working together, particularly in terms of developing digital and online products and services, and closer collaboration will become even more important as technology evolves and we consolidate our position in developing markets.”
