What We Do

Frontline was born out of a vision to create the first dedicated magazine circulation and distribution business managed by specialist and experts in its field.

The idea first came to life in 1986 through magazine publisher Emap. Its value soon gathered recognition within the industry and we gained our first new joint venture partner in 1988 (Haymarket Media Group) and two years later, we entered a further partnership (with BBC Worldwide/Immediate Media Company) making us the largest magazine sales, marketing and distribution company in the UK.

It soon became obvious that our unique service offering could be invaluable to other UK publishers and in 1994 Seymour Distribution emerged as a joint venture agreement between ourselves and Hachette Distribution Services. Our focus – to fulfil the distribution requirements of independent publishers.

We are justly proud of our business values and the culture within which we operate which place us at the cutting edge of our industry and a recognised market leader.
