Our clients ranged broadly, from Reader's Digest and universities to the publishers of Handbook of Chemistry and Physics and Popular Mechanics books.

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

Thoughtful adaptation of new technologies with wider, positive uses in society will continue to shape our future.
