Commenting on the news that turnaround investor Endless was buying Menzies Distribution, NFRN National President Mike Mitchelson said:
“After a period of uncertainty surrounding the future of Menzies Distribution we cautiously welcome the stability that this announcement should bring.
“We look forward to meeting with the new owners in due course to understand its plans, vision and how it sees the future of newspaper and magazine distribution. At the same time, we will take the opportunity to share members’ concerns about current practices in the supply chain which, hopefully, Endless will address.
“According to its website, Endless exists “to make business better for everybody”, so we look forward to seeing some real improvements in the working relationship between the news wholesaler and its retail customers and would welcome some much needed investment.”
