General Publishing Inc. traces its roots directly to the original company. Three generations on, its businesses are now more aligned to particle physics than to printing presses.

Publishing after the tech-celeration

GPi embraces the new technologies that are disrupting the traditional publishing industry. Data shows that in early 2020, because of the pandemic, North America vaulted five years forward of expectations in consumer and business digital adaptation in just eight weeks.

Clearly, viable general publishing already was moving well past the business of just issuing books, journals and printed materials for sale. Its future has arrived ahead of schedule, and for GPi it is about the creation and multi-channel delivery of a spectrum of products, encompassing entertainment, education, information and, of course, books. -CES News, January 8, 2021
