The agreement includes premedia and logistics services for Forbes, which has a circulation of more than 900,000 and is published 26 times per year on a bi-weekly basis. The agreement also covers the printing and distribution of ForbesLife and ForbesLife Executive Women, and related ancillary printing projects.
“At a time when the business and financial worlds are in turmoil, we have been working with Forbes to make continuous improvements in cycle-time reduction,” said Kevin Clarke, president of Quebecor World’s publishing services group, in a statement. “Our end-to-end solutions, which help Forbes manage production from premedia through logistics and distribution, ensure that Forbes is able to be increasingly timely and efficient in its publication delivery.”
“Innovations such as the premedia service center Quebecor World maintains on our site, and the extensive logistics operations that help control our distribution and postage costs, have helped us achieve optimum levels of flexibility, quality and efficiency throughout our production workflow,” added Scott Masterson, SVP and GM at Forbes, in a statement.
