Bertram Group is a leading UK book wholesaler, distributor and retailer of printed and digital books to retailers, libraries and consumers around the world. We operate at the heart of the book industry and strive to exceed the expectations of our customers every day, offering an excellent one-stop shop to acquire content and free them up to focus on their own customers.

Bertrams was founded by the late Elsie Bertram MBE and her son Kip, as a small Norwich-based book supply business, operating out of an old chicken shed.

Now owned by Aurelius Equity Opportunities, Bertrams Group has developed, through acquisition and organic growth, into a dynamic international book supplier, with a purpose-built distribution site in Norwich, operating in over 100 countries.

Bertrams Group is comprised of several divisions – Bertram Books, Dawson Books, Houtschild, Erasmus, Bertram Library Services, Education Umbrella and Wordery – each with dedicated teams offering experience and expertise in all aspects of the business and serving the needs of our diverse customer base.

We achieve this in partnership with every single one of the customers we supply and service; from niche independent and specialist bookstores, through to big-brand high street shops and online retailers, and educational institutions, universities and public libraries.

The nature of our work is varied, but everything we do is underpinned by a strong set of values and a shared commitment to putting what our customers want at the heart of our business.

We have big ambitions and our vision is to be the global bookseller of choice. That means whatever book a customer is searching for, and wherever in the world they are, a Bertram Group brand should be the place they want to go.
